Monday, April 8, 2013

Information published by NethWork:

NethWork is organizing a trade mission to Guatemala and Costa Rica which will take place from Sunday 12 May to Saturday 18 May 2013.

NethWork is focussing on greenhouse production and there will be separate programs for companies specializing in floriculture (flowers, cuttings, potted plants, foliage) and vegetables.

Most NethWork members will participate, but the group is also inviting producers and investors from Central America, North America and Mexico to travel with them.

The program consists of matchmaking activities "B2B" (speed dating for professionals), site visits, business meetings, seminars and workshops.

We have learned from previous experience that visiting a country together with suppliers, wholesalers and consultants has great value and it is therefore a pleasure to invite you to visit Central America with us.

If you are really interested in participating, please fill out the registration form by Friday 19 April. Participation in the mission will cost $500 (including transportation and all activities described in the program. It excludes airfare and hotels). The working language is English during the mission.
