Central Europe Business Development Mission


Representatives from Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of Mississippi companies on a business development mission to Central Europe Aug. 31 through Sept. 4, 2015.
Designed to connect Mississippi businesses that want to expand trade and create new business relationships with qualified buyers in Poland and the Czech Republic, the mission may include an additional stop in a third country, depending on a company’s potential in that market.
The trip will be a multi-industry mission with prospects in the fields of information technology, electrical power systems, green building products and technologies, telecommunications, aerospace, automotive, transportation infrastructure, agricultural equipment, and medical equipment.
One of the primary focuses of the mission will be on the defense sector surrounding the International Defense Industry Exhibition, the largest trade fair dedicated to military equipment in Central and Eastern Europe. The annual event, which draws representatives of the world’s largest defense industry powers, attracts more than 500 exhibitors from 27 countries and attracts more than 15,000 visitors.
Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and early registration is recommended.  The deadline to register is June 26, 2015.
