Training & Resources

MITC conducts or co-hosts trade education programs during the year. These programs range from one-hour market briefings or lunch and learn sessions to an annual one-day conference that features keynote speakers and panel sessions. In order to serve the broadest number of Maine businesses, MITC delivers education programs throughout the state, and we partner with other government, economic development, and academic organizations to co-host seminars on topics of common interest whenever possible.
