Member companies of Lodi Export can avail of cost reductions when taking part in international trade fairs. The Consortium both arranges and makes proposals for participation in events that are of interest to our associates. We can:
- find the area;
- set up the stand;
- organise transport and make hotel bookings;
- hire the interpreting service;
- place advertisements in specialist magazines and catalogues;
- send invitations to customers;
- provide direct assistance before, during and after the fair.
The Consortium plans and provides back-up support for participation in foreign business missions that allow member companies to make direct contact with real markets as well as to identify potential partners and acquire experience and operational information on any given country.
Searches for foreign partners
Every day Lodi Export receives contacts from subjects interested in the products of our member companies. The Consortium quickly passes the relevant information to the member or members and sets up the initial encounter between the parties. If required, it can also assist members though the various phases of development and fine-tuning of contract negotiations.
Moreover, on request, the Consortium can carry out specific research for potential commercial partners (agents,
distributors, suppliers) by sector and geographical area.
Meetings with foreign operators
During trips abroad, Consortium representatives meet delegations, bodies and associations with a view to hatching
mutually beneficial exchange initiatives. Moreover, foreign operators and economic delegations request the assistance of
Lodi Export when they want to visit our member companies and discuss business proposals.
Lodi Export provides support for setting up or updating member company websites. The Consortium also allows members to use its own website to insert pages of text or images and thereby boost visibility of their products.
