Among the many services offered by World Trade Center Utah are the opportunities to visit foreign markets as part of a trade mission or trade show. Participating in either will help you make crucial connections for expanding into new markets.


A trade mission is a comprehensive, immersive visit to a specific country in behalf of Utah. During the trip, representatives for businesses large and small join government representatives in meetings with foreign dignitaries, trade officials, and others to ensure a healthy trade relationship for years to come. Many Utah businesses make long-lasting connections to key trade networks and individuals during a trade mission, proving that it’s still about getting to know the right people.

Trade shows are happening around the world all the time and you can be a part of it! At the most important industry trade shows in foreign markets, World Trade Center Utah operates a large pavilion focused on Utah business. Participating companies each have their own display within the pavilion where they can meet new customers, sell product, and make connections that will enable that next step into a global business. Trade shows have been a huge success for hundreds of Utah businesses—many of whom take advantage of STEP grant money to make the trip more affordable.
