Gold Key Service

Face-to-face meetings with potential partners are the most effective tools the U.S. business community can use to increase exports and expand business operations abroad.  U.S. Commercial Service Colombia offers a complete package for the businessperson visiting this country to meet with potential business partners.  Prior to your trip we will work with you to identify appropriate agents, distributors, joint venture partners, procurement officials, and others you should meet to accomplish your goals while here, schedule appointments with the key officials, and accompany you to the meetings to provide face-to-face introductions. We can even arrange for a car, driver and interpreter if so desired (fees for these services are not included in the fee for the Gold Key Service, and payment should be made by you directly to the service providers).

* A Small or Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) is defined as a firm with 500 or fewer employees or self-certified as a small business under SBA regulations. A large company is defined as a firm with more than 500 employees. Subsidiaries will be classified based on the size of the parent company.

** In some cases conducting a comprehensive and effective International Partner Search in Colombia requires the use of outside contractors whose fees to CS exceed $350. In these cases CS Bogota will be unable to offer the New-to-Export SME discount offered by some CS Posts.

Additional Notes:

  • Expedited service 100% additional to the regular price. (Minimum three weeks' notice)
  • The client will be charged a rescheduling fee of $200 in the event in which he cancels his visit or requests a date change within two weeks of the scheduled date.
  • In some cases, despite a thorough and exhaustive search by our experienced industry experts, a Gold Key Service turns up no interested parties. This is valuable and instructive feedback for the U.S. exporter, and is not grounds for re-conducting the service or issuing a refund.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information or to order this service.
