Export Delaware invites you to join us on a business trip to Israel to meet new customers and potential partners. Meeting face-to-face with prospective customers is critical to establishing new business relationships around the world. Let us help you make the right contacts overseas and achieve new international sales! We will arrange business meetings with distributors, agents, or customers according to your needs, all specific to your company.
Israel has a strong economy with a spirit of innovation that is complimentary to U.S. products and services, specifically high-end equipment and technology.
- Safety and security, healthcare, IT, communication and defense are key target sectors.
- In addition, business services are in high demand and made up 28% of Israel’s total imports in 2017.
- According to the U.S. Commercial Service, Israel remains a hi-tech center for global design and R&D, providing significant opportunities for U.S.-Israel commercial partnerships and joint ventures.
The State of Delaware’s trade representative in Israel, Seth Vogelman and the Export Delaware staff will plan a full itinerary and schedule for you, complete with one-on-one meetings with potential customers. All itineraries are custom to each participant and include meetings with vetted potential clients that you pre-qualify. Our goal is to create a successful program for you and to help you close deals in-country on the trip or upon returning back to the States. In addition, we help plan logistics for ease of travel. This includes in-country transportation on the trip and a preparation session, in-country briefing and follow-up support after the trip.
A portion of the 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 $7,000).
