Trade Mission to Florida and Jamaica 2022

Looking to grow or expand your markets in the Caribbean and Latin America?

The Centre for Women in Business, together with the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Beyond Ventures and M&C Latin Consulting, will host an in-market trade mission in late September 2022 for up to 10 Atlantic Canadian companies.   The multi-sectoral trade mission may be of interest to new exporters and/or experienced exporters.  This mission is not gender-specific and open to all companies.

Why Miami, Florida?

Miami is the gateway to both the Caribbean and Latin America.  One-third of all US exports to these regions are shipped from or through the State.  It is an ideal location to foster relationships with partners and distributors who can help you move your products into the region.

Take your business to Jamaica?

The following sectors offer the greatest opportunities for Canadian companies:  agricultural and processed foods; education; information and communication technologies; infrastructure, building products and related services; sustainable technologies.

Timeline*:

Sept 21-23 – Miami, Florida

Sept 26-28 – Kingston, Jamaica

Sept 29-30 – Montego Bay, Jamaica
