Kick-off Export Community North America

May 02, 2022

On April 12, the first meeting of the Export Community North America took place. We were pleased to welcome no less than 8 entrepreneurs from the Northern Netherlands during the kick-off meeting.

At the end of last year WTC Leeuwarden actively started setting up Export Communities. Export Communities bring like-minded people together to exchange experiences, gain knowledge and share networks. Specifically, with the aim of increasing exports.

A Community consists of exporters and experts. They meet frequently online as well as physically. An Export Community can be organized by country/region, sector or theme. Think of an Export Community Food B2C, Export Community Agro Machinery & Supplies and Export Community Middle East.

During each meeting an export related theme is discussed, knowledge and experience are exchanged and discussions take place.

During the kick-off of the Export Community North America the participants presented their company and products.
