Following their successful February & May 2016 Trade Missions to Tehran the Middle East Association (MEA) will be facilitating a further Multi-Sector Trade Mission to Iran in September 2016. 

The benefit of the mission:

  • This multi-sector Mission will visit Tehran from 24th to 29th September 2016.
  • Full in-market support will be available for the Middle East Association mission leaders who have first-hand experience in doing business in Iran.
  • Delegates will be provided with unique networking opportunities including a vast range of introductions and high level executive meetings. 
  • As the mission sponsor, the Middle East Association will be directing the mission programme in-country, which will include a variety of meetings and events based upon the delegate’s requirements.

 

Benefits of the mission:

  • The programme in-country will be led by the Middle East Association, who will organise a variety of group meetings and in addition a personalised programme per mission delegate.
  • There will be a mission reception on Sunday 25th September, which will be attended by a number of high level executives. This will provide delegates with a brilliant opportunity to network with attendees of the reception and amongst themselves. 
  • Mission delegates will be advised and assisted in obtaining the invitation required to obtain  their Iranian business visa and are offered a specially negotiated group travel and accommodation package.
  • A bilingual mission brochure will be produced and printed, which will advertise each delegate’s company and product/service to potential contacts in-market prior to the mission’s departure.

 

Who is this mission for?

  • Members, and non-members of the Middle East Association are both invited to join this mission.
  • Mission participants must be British exporters of goods or services.  They may be a UK registered subsidiary of a foreign company, provided they are actively contributing to the British economy.
