The program offers several choices for trade mission participants. Interested companies may travel on the trade mission to Germany or they may choose to be represented by the GACC-CO on the mission. The GACC-CO also intends to meet and assist up to five German companies looking for representation in the Rocky Mountain region.
The GACC-CO trade mission features one-on-one business appointments at CeBIT 2012 and in the Hannover area for Rocky Mountain region companies as well as networking events with German business organizations. Participants may also choose to meet with the Hannover Chamber of Commerce and Industry or with prominent technology companies, universities and potential trade partners. Last date to complete application and registration for the trade mission is February 15, 2012, according to Bennett.
Bennett also noted that “Colorado companies may be eligible for financial assistance for the trade mission expenses up to $3,500 through the State of Colorado, OEDIT’s Next Step Program for qualifying companies.” More information at www.tinyurl.com/
