We put together corporate programs, which are custom-tailored branding, sales and/or marketing programs for corporations that are looking to expand on the U.S. market, make their brand(s) known, reach new customers and increase sales.
We custom tailor Trade Missions for companies interested in a new market. Through our local chambers we ensure that products, services and information are presented in the right way to the right people. Trade missions should be considered as a first step for companies to evaluate their potential to establish/expand in the U.S. and for business regions to form strategic alliances that are mutually beneficial for their region and their potential U.S. partner(s) as well as attracting companies to their region.
We distribute eCurrents -a high quality journal with news and information relating to our Swedish-American business network as well as regional Chamber events.
