Trade Mission to South Korea - CANCELLED

SMI logo small (c2)

Monday 21st January 2019 | South Korea



Build your business in South Korea whether you’re new to the market or more experienced by joining this trade mission.  South Korea is a leading global shipbuilder with 211 newbuild contracts since January 2018.  To develop business in this market it is important to develop relationships both with design teams and shipyards.  This isn’t an easy task to undertake and an accompanied sales trip like this Mission are an excellent way to gain access and start the process.  The biennial trade show visits are not enough to build knowledge and see what is happening on the ground.  You will also learn a great deal from the accompanying UK companies.
