Find potential agents, distributors or other strategic partners overseas

Our staff located in 80 countries around the globe can save you valuable time and money by conducting an international partner search in a specific market to find potential agents, distributors or other strategic partners.

We will contact a large group of potential overseas business partners using the marketing materials you provide, and then identify the companies that are interested and capable of becoming a viable representative for you in that market.

Arrange meetings with potential agents, distributors or other strategic partners overseas

The most effective method of establishing a successful business relationship with potential agents, distributors or other strategic partners is to demonstrate your willingness to travel to meet with them overseas.

Our staff located in 80 countries around the globe can arrange meetings for you with potential agents, distributors or other partners in a specific market. We carefully screen and qualify potential business partners to ensure that your meetings are productive and informative.

Although traveling overseas to meet face-to-face with potential agents, distributors or other partners is the preferred business practice, if your schedule or travel budget limits your ability to travel overseas we do offer a video conferencing option.
