(Trade Winds-Africa, 2015)

“It’s been a long couple of days but with plenty of accomplishments and success to come. Thank you for all your efforts and preparations for Trade Winds. I must say it has been a total success so far, and exports to come in a very near future. I can witness that you play a very important role in our new business endeavors. Thank you for your efforts to get to know more about our products.” Spectra Colors (Trade Winds-Asia, 2012)

“I would like to take a moment to thank each of you for providing your expert assistance during our travels into SE Asia. Overall the trip was a success. We had the opportunity to truly learn about the market from those on the ground, make contacts with possible business partners, and learn about other global opportunities we could become a part of to help ensure the international growth we desire.” Consensus Orthopedics (Trade Winds-Asia, 2012)

“This was the first time for me participating in a Trade Winds event and I have to say that I was really impressed by the organization, the quality of the speakers, the quality of the event and the incredible assistance from all the trade offices to set up our meetings. I am more than confident that we will find the right partners in Asia thanks to the US Department of Commerce. On my side, Asia was a market that I didn't know at all and the amount of information and advices I learnt and was given during those 2 weeks is incredible and priceless.” Miller Weldmaster (Trade Winds-Asia, 2012)

“It’s worth it, no questions about it! […]Once I saw that there were opportunities in Mexico, it was clear that Trade Winds would be a good way to grow our business. […] It was great to get straight up answers about our prospects in so many markets in one day.” Fuzion Technologies (Trade Winds-Mexico)

“[...] Trade Winds forum delivered great results in multiple areas.  We have learned a great deal about the opportunities and hands on intricacies of doing business in the different national markets in Latin America.  [...] Commercial Service officers [...] provided valuable practical advice and contacts that resulted in a conference invitation [...] and business development capabilities [...] we had a chance to interact with local- and global companies and shared experiences that cannot be learned in any other way just by “doing it”.  The forum was a terrific channel to accelerate and enhance entering a region for us.” ActiveMedia (Trade Winds-Brazil)

“Trade Winds Mexico 2011 generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in new client purchases for our company.  Not even a year in the making, Grovara LLC was speed-lined to the front of the exporting industrial pack - The US Government helped make our business what it is today.” Grovara LLC (Trade Winds-Mexico) 

“This program has been incredibly educational and extremely eye opening to the opportunities in Mexico and other Latin/South American countries. The sessions were very useful and brought up many things I hadn’t even thought to consider for exporting!” Duperon (Trade Winds-Mexico)
