AMT undertakes trade missions on a regular basis to help introduce member companies to unfamiliar markets. Invariably the markets promise speedy growth and are receptive to the type of technology the U.S. has to offer and the way we do business. Doors are opened and contacts made on a level which cannot be expected for individual companies.

Trade Mission visits will be organized to approximately 15 end users and potential customers for participants' products. These visits combined with other important meetings, such as economic briefings from the U.S. Department of Commerce Foreign Commercial Officers (USFCO) on site, will enable members to get a clear understanding of their potential for success if they choose to develop a business strategy to pursue that market.

AMT's staff will work together with the members to organize every detail of the mission from visits to end users, USFCO meetings, interpreters, local transportation, hotels and even restaurants. Experienced AMT staff will be with you throughout the mission and will work with each participant to ensure that individual objectives are met.
