The trade mission is designed to help successful SMEs looking to export to or overcome the challenges of the US market, connecting them with people and businesses in one of the world largest markets.

Top trade expertise

The competition promises that successful applicants for the mission will get one-on-one guidance from top trade experts, meet other UK businesses already established in the US market, go to presentations and tailored meetings as well as the chance to forge new business and export links with American firms and see the inner workings of the global logistics industry first hand.

You’ll need to be quick as the chance to apply for the exciting opportunity ends tomorrow, with an internal panel due to shortlist 20 businesses to go forward to judging day.
