Shake hands with your new customers... in their country!

Trade Missions

Face-to-face meetings are as important to international business as they are to domestic marketing. VEDP-International Trade helps Virginia companies meet potential customers and partners through participation in trade missions. We arrange these trips for several companies to travel together and individually meet with potential buyers or distributors that are pre-qualified based on your export market objectives.

Trade Shows

Your company can meet new customers and grow international sales by exhibiting at international trade shows.  At select international trade shows, Virginia’s booth provides the ideal ‘home base’ for co-exhibiting companies, allowing them to exhibit their products and services and network with prospective customers. Click here to view our calendar of upcoming trade shows.

With Virginia’s Trade Show Assistance Program, eligible companies can receive up to $10,000 in reimbursements for exhibiting at a trade show that is relevant to their unique product, service, or industry. To learn more about this program, contact your local International Trade Manager.
