Bringing U.S. BlueTech Companies to Europe in April 2017

The Maritime Alliance will be bringing U.S. companies to Europe in April as part of the U.S. Maritime Technology Export Initiative, with the goal being to make connections, build partnerships and develop win-win business opportunities with international partners.

U.S. companies will be participating in two distinct activities including the Ocean Business trade show in Southampton, UK April 4-6, and a U.S. BlueTech Trade Mission to the port cities of Copenhagen (April 10), Hamburg (April 11) and Rotterdam (April 12 and optional day April 13).  All activities have been developed in collaboration with the International Trade Administration, Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and BlueTech cluster partners in multiple regions in Europe.

Seven companies were selected to join the U.S. BlueTech pavilion (Stand V42) at Ocean Business where they will be exhibiting, participating in B2B networking events, giving presentations and looking to establish international partnerships.  Additional events are tentatively planned on April 3rd and April 7th, book-ending the trade show.  For a list of U.S. companies exhibiting in the U.S. BlueTech Pavilion and updated details related to events planned during and around Ocean Business, please check here often.

Following Ocean Business, a separate set of seven U.S. companies have confirmed their participation in the U.S. BlueTech Trade Mission to Copenhagen, Hamburg and Rotterdam.  In addition to B2B networking and presentations in each of these port cities, meetings in Copenhagen will include a cluster convening for leading BlueTech or Maritime Clusters from around the region.  For a list of U.S. companies participating in the U.S. BlueTech Trade Mission and for updated itineraries and registration links, please check here often.
