Customized Trade Missions

One of the most effective ways to do business continues to be face-to-face. Trade missions are 2-3 day business visits to meet with prescreened companies selected to meet the needs of your company or organization. These missions also include business matchmaking, communication assistance, and transportation. Trade missions are organized in conjunction with the Free Trade Alliance of San Antonio.
