2017 Trade Missions

The Auto Care Association and the International Trade Administration are excited to announce the first trade mission confirmed for 2017, as part of the Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) award the association received from the U.S. Department of Commerce to support export promotion projects in Latin America.

A trade mission to Colombia has been confirmed for June 2017. Please check back soon for detailed information and how to register.

Trade missions are a cost-effective opportunity to gain first-hand market information and one-on-one meetings with foreign industry executives, pre-screened to match participants’ specific business objectives. 

Companies seeking to export goods or services produced in the United States, or goods or services that contain at least  51 percent U.S. content, are encouraged to participate. Qualifying firms are eligible for:

  • A grant for a portion of the trade mission cost
  • Personalized business-to-business meetings through the U.S. Commercial Service's Gold Key Matchmaking Service

Companies do not have to be a member of the Auto Care Association to apply.
