About our trade missions

Connecting Victorian businesses to global opportunities

At Global Victoria, we’re continually looking for new and innovative ways to help Victorian businesses become more globally connected.

Our trade mission program plays an important role in supporting Victorian businesses to expand their potential in international markets and increase their exports.

As part of the Victorian Government’s $15.7million Export Recovery Package, we'll be delivering a suite of Virtual Trade Missions (VTMs) in 2020/21. The program aims to connect businesses to global opportunities and help them conduct their international business across digital platforms.

The VTM program builds on our comprehensive suite of initiatives and global network of 23 Victorian Government Trade and Investment (VGTI) offices.

Based on individual requirements, eligible Victorian businesses taking part in the VTM program may have access to the following trade mission components:

  • business matching and one-to-one introductions
  • engaging virtual networking events
  • virtual exhibitions, panel sessions, group briefings, market insights and other trade mission content
  • in-market experiences for international delegates – showcasing Victorian products in markets where coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions allow
  • virtual presenting and pitch training
  • marketing collateral creation including video content.

Key sectors of focus

Developed in partnership with industry partners or as stand-alone tailored programs around existing events and global trade shows, the key sectors of focus for the VTM program include:

  • health, medical technologies and pharmaceuticals
  • technology
  • defence and advanced manufacturing
  • professional services
  • international education and education technology (EdTech)
  • sport
  • wellness, beauty and lifestyle brands.
