SEED Virtual Activities & Trade Missions

A free programme of support was available to companies based in the SELEP region and consisted of the following virtual activities which began in Autumn 2021 and ended in October 2022:

  • Online 1-2-1 export readiness meetings with an International Trade or Business Advisor to ensure participating businesses were ‘export-ready’.
  • Virtual group export & trade mission training sessions with tailored advice for businesses about regulations and exporting procedures relevant to the target markets. These also included trade mission preparation sessions to ensure participants were able to get the most out of their trade mission meetings.
  • Virtual trade missions whereby SELEP-based companies had the opportunity to meet with and present their business to in-market contacts.
