TRADE MISSION to OGDEN (UTAH), SALT LAKE CITY and INTERBIKE

Event details

  • Saturday | 16/09/2017 to Friday | 22/09/2017

This trade mission is part of the EU4SPORTS-project with several European Sports Clusters.

Our goal is to support the members of our cluster in their challenge to strengthen the internationalization.

This can be done by establishing a USA branch in Ogden or a cooperation with a distributor located in Ogden or Utah.

Support the opportunity for USA sport related companies to expand their business to Europe and land with a EU branch at one of the clusters, Belgium, Spain, France or Holland (reverse mission).

Cross-fertilization based on process innovation on composites etc.

Installing “ambassadors” on both sides with the goal to service and support companies who want to expand their intercontinental business EU-USA or USA-EU.

Why Ogden ?

Ogden offers access to all the advantages of a major metropolitan area, but maintains a low cost of business and living, high quality of life, and unparalleled access to the outdoors.

In recent years, Ogden has experienced a major renaissance, with the revitalization of its downtown and the growth of many industries.
