WEDC Global Trade Venture: Canada 2021

Date:  March 22-26,
Location:  Virtual
For details click here.

During the virtual trade venture to Canada, participants will be scheduled for one-on-one meetings with potential partners in the market. These partners are identified based on each participating company’s specific goals and objectives. Each participant in the trade venture will also receive a Canada market assessment detailing considerations they should keep in mind when introducing their product or service into the market. WEDC has eyes and ears on the ground in Canada, in the form of Wisconsin’s authorized trade representative based in Toronto—thus making it easier for Wisconsin companies to find local partners they can trust, taking some of the guesswork out of launching in a new market or growing exports within the market. With all your appointments arranged for you, you can focus on business rather than logistics and scheduling.

Some current sectors of opportunity include:

  • Food and beverage
  • E-commerce
  • Health care (including virtual health care)
  • Green infrastructure
  • Information and communications technology, including work-from-home, cybersecurity and online learning technologies

Registration Deadline: January 22, 2021
