Maine International Trade Center coordinates trade missions and organizes participation in international industry trade shows to promote Maine's goods and services to markets around the globe.
Each year MITC organizes a large State of Maine Trade Mission, usually with the Governor, as well as smaller (often industry-specific) missions. Trade missions are particularly useful for first time exporters or companies that have had difficulty expanding into a particular country or market. Trade Missions provide one-on-one meetings with potential foreign trade partners and unique networking opportunities. MITC arranges most details including transportation, translators and business meetings.
We have led trade missions to Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
In addition to the trade missions, MITC coordinates participation at several industry-specific international trade shows. These shows provide an excellent opportunity to meet potential customers and gain valuable market insight.
We also host international conferences and incoming delegations from overseas. MITC members enjoy opportunities to network with foreign buyers, commercial representatives and visiting dignitaries.
