Big Apple opportunity for Chamber members!

Following the success of their Trade Mission to Tartan Week last April, the Forth Valley Chamber of Commerce will be leading a delegation to New York.

They have chosen to visit the US again due to the continuing strong business connections between New York and Scotland with the aim to bring the best of Scotland across the Atlantic.

The trade mission, taking place from 12th -15th April 2023 will help businesses explore international trade opportunities in New York City and beyond.

At this stage, FVCC are inviting businesses from the following sectors to apply to attend:

  • Retail
  • Food and Drink
  • Luxury Goods
  • Textiles

What is involved?

As part of this trade mission delegates will receive market sector specific briefings on trading in the US, one-to-one business meetings with potential clients or trade partners in New York based on your company requirements. 

You will also have the opportunity for product placement at key events throughout the week, and the opportunity to be part of a ‘Meet the Maker/Trade Fair’ event which will take place in a central location, and of course march in the world renowned Tartan Day Parade on 6th Ave celebrating the events’ 25th anniversary.

This is a fantastic opportunity to dip your toe in the water of international trade at a relatively low cost.  Businesses must cover the cost of thier own travel, accommodation, and some food (probably around £2,500). 

To secure your place on the mission, a non-refundable deposit of £300 plus VAT is required. Various sponsorship opportunities are also available.
