U.S. Franchise Trade Mission to Germany & Hungary in November
This November 14-19, the U.S. Commercial Service (USCS) and the IFA have teamed up for a Franchise Trade Mission to Frankfurt, Germany and Budapest, Hungary. The trip is designated as a Certified Trade Mission by the USCS.
Franchise companies that participate will receive valuable briefings, firsthand market research, and the opportunity to meet investors in two of Europe's most important economies.
Itinerary items include one-on-one matchmaking meetings with pre-screened local investors (based on criteria provided by the U.S. franchisors making the trip), country briefings with U.S. Embassy officials and USCS officers, briefings from local commercial and legal experts, and local site visits.
These trade missions can be a cost-effective opportunity to establish a personal feel for the culture, political climate, and market potential of a country.
