Business development trip to California
Support for the water management sector when entering the US market
The Borderstep Institute is organizing a five-day business development trip to California for the water management sector in cooperation with the German American Chamber of Commerce in San Francisco (GACC West) and German Water Partnership. The focus is on water treatment and water resources management on the West Coast of the United States.
The project is part of the BMWi market development program, funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) on the basis of a resolution passed by the German Bundestag. The purpose of the business development trip is to provide participants with access to this internationally important market and to help them establish new business contacts.
The program is aimed at SMEs from industry and commerce, as well as independent specialists and economic service providers with business operations in Germany.
The trip is centered on individually organized business meetings. These are intended to lay the foundations for new collaborations and prospective contracts. The meetings will be held in Greater Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.
The business trip includes a full-day presentation event in Los Angeles, California, where participants will have the opportunity to present themselves to a select audience of specialists.
