Canadian Smart Cities Trade Mission to the Gulf Region

Virtual: 29 – 30 November, 2021
In-Person: 21 – 24 February, 2022

This February, CABC in partnership with the World Trade Centre Toronto will be hosting a Smart Cities delegation to Dubai Expo 2020. If you are serious about adapting your expansion strategies to the Middle East and would like to connect with potential partners in Dubai, this mission is right for you. Today, only a small portion of Canadian SMEs are active in the global marketplace. Taking the time to develop a strong export strategy and network in-market, is what sets you up for success in your international expansion.
Taking our experiential approach to international trade will allow you to participate in outbound trade missions and will present the following opportunities-

  • Engage in networking opportunities at Expo Dubai 2020 and Canada Day activities with high level dignitaries
  • Assess your market readiness through educational workshops and market considerations
  • Build your international network through introductions to best-in-class subject matter experts and speakers in market
  • In-market support through b2b coordination, logistics, translation, and problem-solving services

With this, you will be better prepared for business-to-business meetings and in market experiences. Connecting with our in-market consultant early on allows for carefully curated meetings based on your unique needs and objectives. Gain confidence in your market entry strategies as you move to the in-market business development stage of global expansion. If this aligns with your company’s current strategic objectives, we highly encourage you to apply!

Please note we will only be accepting a maximum of 15 companies into the program and applications close as of October 30. Cost of the program is $2,950 (In Person + $500 Air Canada Voucher provided), the rest of the cost is subsidized by our generous sponsors.
