World Trade Center Utah is leading qualifying Utah companies to Southeast Asia’s top manufacturing and distribution hubs — Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam — to explore economic and business opportunities in this region.

Offering an alternative solution to many current supply chain woes, Southeast Asia has become an increasingly attractive destination for cost-effective sourcing and manufacturing due to its strategic location, low labor and production costs, and shipping efficiency. Moreover, the region is among the fastest-growing consumer markets globally, granting unique opportunities for Utah companies to grow their sales or discover new business partners.

We will continue to update this website with the latest logistical information as we get closer to the business trip.


Our objective for this trip is to have Utah companies walk away with new partners discovered, deals made and contracts signed — whether they be for a better contract manufacturer or new international sales.

Join us in Southeast Asia to

➕ Connect with vetted suppliers and distributors.
➕ Position your company for increased sales.
➕ Forge new international partnerships.
➕ Explore new opportunities with other Utah companies and WTC Utah’s team of experts.
