Outbound trade missions
Outbound trade missions assist Queensland businesses to directly establish contacts in targeted markets. Pre-mission preparation including market briefings is provided.
Trade and Investment Queensland officers, often led by Queensland Government Ministers, accompany the missions to provide on-the-ground support during the mission and assist in following up export opportunities.
In-market meetings are also arranged with potential customers and business partners to make the most of business visits.
Inbound trade missions
Queensland regularly hosts inbound trade missions which provide an ideal, cost-effective way of meeting overseas representatives from government and industry.
Inbound trade missions can range from a small number of companies from a specific industry sector to large multi-disciplined delegations. Export showcases by a group of Queensland firms and one-on-one meetings are arranged to encourage business discussions with the delegations.
Virtual trade missions
Virtual trade missions employ video conferencing technology to assist potential exporters to better understand the requirements and preferences of overseas markets without having to leave Queensland. This helps new exporters to be better prepared before they travel overseas by providing virtual interaction with in-market experts and potential overseas buyers.
International trade exhibitions
Trade and Investment Queensland coordinates Queensland participation in international trade exhibitions in priority markets, providing Queensland companies with a cost-effective international platform to promote their products and services.
Our calendar of event and export training provides information on upcoming trade missions and international trade exhibitions, which are available for Queensland companies.
Information on past trade missions led by the Premier can be found on the Premier of Queensland's website.
