World Trade Center Utah (WTC Utah) is accepting applications for Gov. Gary Herbert’s trade mission to Singapore and Vietnam, which takes place Aug. 25 through Sept. 3. Any company considering expanding into Asia should attend.
Trade missions put Utah companies in front of potential partners and customers, which establishes trust and leads to increased opportunities. Having Gov. Herbert lead the Singapore and Vietnam trade mission will open doors to companies traveling to support their international efforts.
Registration must be submitted by July 11, at which time a non-refundable $500 deposit is also due. The registration form can be found at www.wtcutah.com.
Why You Should Attend
Vietnam and Singapore are prime markets for companies looking to export their products to Asia. Vietnam is expected to have the second strongest average GDP growth between now and 2050, exceeding 5 percent a year on average. Both countries have a growing middle class and are recognized for their ease of doing business. Household spending in Singapore is projected to increase 11 percent by 2018.
Trade mission participants will experience market-specific briefings by in-country experts and the U.S. Commercial Service; pre-arranged and customized business-to-business meetings through the U.S. Commercial Service’s Gold Key Matchmaking Service; site visits; and VIP networking receptions for business leaders and elected officials.
The trade mission is hosted by WTC Utah in partnership with Zions Bank, U.S. Commercial Service, the Small Business Administration and the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development. Companies looking for more information can visit the WTC Utah website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
