The Gold Key Service

If you are looking for help in meeting with potential business partners in the UK, then the time saving Gold Key Service may be just what you need. The London Gold Key program is a matchmaking service that American companies can use to connect with local companies that may be interested in representing them in the UK market. The program can also be used to identify service providers that can help with market development.

Upon receipt of literature, a Gold Key takes between four and six weeks to organize and normally involves a senior representative of the client company traveling to the United Kingdom to meet with all the potential UK companies. Generally, all meetings are held at the American Embassy in London, though site visits can be arranged if the client wishes.

Delivery Time: To be determined in consultation with Post.
