At the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, we realise that now more than ever our role in supporting and leading businesses to grow in international markets is of vital importance.
To inform and drive the growth of Edinburgh businesses internationally, we launched our International Trade Club which offers a range of services, listed below:
International Events, Inward and Outward Trade Missions
Our programme provides international support, general export advice and information to help you take the first step, as well as specific market information and case studies to help you decide where to take your business next.
Explore international business opportunities through our international events calendar. Or are you interested in entering new markets or working with international businesses? Then why not attend one of our inward and /or outward trade missions. Our priority markets include Ireland, France, Spain, USA, Canada, China, Germany, Belgium, Norway and the Netherlands.
