Preparation is key to success!
NTC supports with the following:
Market research reports and sector studies - Know the facts and figures & exact market opportunities before starting! It prevents mistakes and saves valuable time.
Market entry strategy - A valuable tool for finding the right partner.
Matchmaking - Solid partner selection is key. All aspects of our proven successful matchmaking process are covered... for 1 or for 100 companies simultaneously!
Subsidies - We assist in national as well as international and EU projects and also use them to ligthen the costs of projects.
Your Export Manager -We also travel on your behalf to visit specific customers or participating in trade fairs to find partners and execute the marketing of your products. Thats what you call hands-on!
Coaching & Advice - Concerning company strategy, export plans, overcoming export hurdles, etc..
Also using SIB coaching vouchers.
Trade mission and tours we can organise for you from A to Z, both for our part in the Netherlands as well as the local organisation through our trusted partners in the respective countries.
Contents vary per mission but could be for example: country- & specific sector information, finding market opportunities, intake meetings, matchmaking, store checks, visits to companies in the specific sector, chambers of commerce, governmental organisations, trade clubs, NGOs, etc...
All logistics like travel, hotels, restaurants, etc. including specific individual requirements and marketing aspects of the mission are in good hands with us.
In case there are dignitaries present we know the formalities and how to keep everyone happy. We know it requires flexibility and improvisational ability.
Wheter it is a cheese making study tour for Pakistani famers, an outgoing trade mission to Uganda in agricultural machinery, an incoming mission from the USA in fashion or an inspiration tour in the design sector to Milan or Paris we take care to make it an outright success.
We organise individual stands as well as large collective (country)pavillions and take care of everything so you can concentrate on your business.
Our international network of stand builders is comprehensive.
Participation in a trade fair is ideal to communicate with existing partners, find potential partners, gather market information and market your product . A collective pavillion is also ideal to connect with the other participants to help each other and exchange market information.
In cooperation with the NL Embassies, trade fair organisers, local trade clubs and others we offer many extras such as network parties and dinners, award givings, workshops, study tours, etc...
We also organise small and larger congresses and workshops in the Netherlands or outside in any sector required.
All activities can be organised on-line as well!
