Howard County Trade Mission

Join us on May 22, 2024, from 9 to 10 a.m. for an informative session on the benefits of participating in a county executive-led trade mission. Discover how this opportunity can enhance your business’s credibility, visibility, and market access.

  • Participating in a county executive-led trade mission boosts company credibility and market visibility. These missions offer valuable insights, government support, and cost-effective market entry. Participants also gain access to official events and matchmaking meetings as part of the official delegation.
  • The ExportMD Program helps offset international marketing costs with up to $5,000 in reimbursement for eligible expenses.
  • Export counseling services provide up to 20 hours of assistance annually from global trade experts on topics like distributor searches and local regulations.
  • The Global Gateway Program facilitates “soft landings” by pairing companies with partner incubators/organizations abroad.
  • With potential cost savings up to 50% compared to independent market entry, Maryland’s programs offer turnkey solutions for businesses to safely and effectively pursue international growth opportunities.

Please register for a mission information session to learn more about: mission details, itinerary and market opportunities, benefits of participating in a county-led trade mission, available grants and resources to help reduce cost up to 50%.
