Go Global: Germany, Austria and Switzerland Trade Mission Coming Up

Go Global: Germany, Austria and Switzerland Business Trip Coming Up



Global Delaware’s business trip to Germany this past fall was a great success. All six Delaware companies that participated returned with new distributors in Europe, RFP’s from potential customers and new high-level contacts and leads.


With $50 billion U.S. products exported to Germany last year, the nation is a leading export market, especially in the medical device, IT and bio-science industries. Germany, Austria and Switzerland are your business gateway to Europe. Want to learn more about the region? Here’s everything you need to know about doing business in Germany.


Join us on the next business trip: 

February 27 – March 3, 2017
Germany, Austria and Switzerland 


Business trips with Global Delaware are an excellent opportunity to meet face-to-face with distributors and potential customers – all with the assistance of our team!


Delaware’s in-country trade representative, Alexander Bothmann, is an expert in the region and will arrange business meetings with distributors, agents and customers tailored to your business needs. He will also prep you on the companies, and share best practices when it comes to doing business in Europe.


Plus, your transportation will be taken care of and interpreters will be provided!


Trip costs and financial assistance

Global Delaware is committed to planning a successful business trip to help you meet your goals. In fact, the services provided by the State are valued at $6,500 per company.


Your travel expenses may even be covered by the STEP Grant, a program by the SBA that will reimburse up to 50 percent of all pre-approved, eligible, export marketing expenses (up to a maximum of $5,000).
