“The service we provide is quite complex, and because of this I did not know what to expect from the Gold Key Service. I was in for a surprise! The Commercial Service quickly understood what Regis did, and assembled a very complete list of potential companies to meet during my trip to Israel. These meetings were incredibly challenging for me, but the Commercial Service was there helping me all the way. The follow up report to the visit alone was worth thousands of dollars to Regis and illustrated the potential for yet another trip to Israel.” Regis Technologies, Paul Flynn, Business Development Manager
