The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI) are currently recruiting companies to participate in an upcoming trade mission to Boston from April 26 to 28, 2010.
The United States is Nova Scotia largest export market; receiving more than 78% of Nova Scotia total exports.
Boston, Massachusetts, is an ideal location for Nova Scotia companies to expand their markets because of the excellent transportation routes between the regions.
Boston also offers Nova Scotia companies a highly-competitive market with similar business sector opportunities. These sectors include, but are not limited to:
Information communications technology
Construction and building materials
Value-added food products
As a participant of the trade mission, you will benefit from:
- A business matchmaker with expertise in doing business in Boston will identify business opportunities specific to your company.
- Prior to the mission, the business matchmaker will set up one-on-one in-market meetings (up to a maximum of six) for you with potential leads.
- Ground transportation to and from business meetings.
- Networking events to assist you in market entry or expansion.
You are responsible for the costs of round-trip airfare, accommodations and meals.
