Trade Missions

Discovering the World

Gain knowledge and inspiration about a specific market such as China, Chile, Berlin or Senegal? Network at a high level with other participating top companies, suppliers, agents, distributors, potential customers or governments? Export Partner organizes several trend tours and inbound and outbound trade missions each year, all aimed at opening new doors for your organization.

Export Partner has been an official framework contractor of the RVO since 2012. For the set-up and organization we therefore work closely with the Dutch government, the Dutch top sectors, industry organizations, local governments, foreign governments and embassies. Thanks to these high quality partners, our years of experience and our priceless network, the quality of the participants, the program and the matchmaking is guaranteed before and during the trip.

In 2020, the Netherlands Export Combination merged into Export Partner. The NEC was the driving force behind ‘Nederland Exportland’ and already organized the first trade trips in the 1950s.

As an Export Partner, we connect Dutch SMEs with relevant international relations. During the trade missions, the parties have the opportunity to get to know each other, explore trends and developments and build up potential collaborations. With the COVID-19 measures, it is not (or has been) possible to travel and, therefore, not to organize trade trips.

During a trade mission, a program is drawn up based on the intake of the delegation. The sessions are organized as interactively as possible through group discussions and different organizations to get the best out of the mission and strengthen collaborations.
