MobiliseSME Visits Trade Fairs to Meet SMEs
Friday, March 24th, 2017
The MobiliseSME mobility scheme is now well established with many employees currently enjoying their new experience in hosting companies. However, we are not ceasing the efforts to promote the project, nor giving up any opportunity to share these success stories with more enterprises, which will hopefully become the protagonists of future mobilities. For example this week, we have visited some trade fairs, the meeting point of entrepreneurs who are looking for new opportunities for their businesses.
We know well that nothing beats a direct contact with companies: meeting in person, talking to entrepreneurs, answering their questions and clarifying any concerns they may have on the spot. Trade fairs seem to be the best fit for meeting them in great numbers, spanning across different sectors, sizes and needs, to advocate the scheme benefits and to share with them the positive experience of fellow enterprises.
Only in Brussels, we have attended four trade fairs this week dedicated to safety and security, IT storage and digital protection, international tourism and innovation in industrial machinery. We were happy to receive a very enthusiastic feedback about the project. Entrepreneurs saw that it is a unique opportunity to build new network, get specialised training for their staff and develop new business partnerships. Moreover, they were very appreciative of the financial support provided to employees to help cover their travel and accommodation costs during the exchange visit.
As a result, we experienced a new wave of companies registering on our Matchmaking Platform to look for a match. You too should not miss out on finding your business mate – register now!
