STRATEGIC MARKET DEVELOPMENT

We are service providers on behalf of Saxony’s companies wanting to successfully develop international markets. Branch-related entrepreneurial trips to very promising target markets as well as joint presentations at trade shows and conferences around the globe all help Saxony’s enterprises gain initial and/or in-depth experiences on global markets which will then hopefully lead to very lucrative and profitable export transactions. Together with our partners, we offer events which provide information about global markets. And within the scope of our market and branch related project packages (duration: 1 year), we provide flexible and target-oriented assistance and support when it comes to market development projects in combination with our diverse export promotion measures and tools.

FOREIGN TRADE STRATEGY

The Saxony Economic Development Corporation (WFS) lets its strategic expertise and experience gained from 25 years of conducting foreign trade activities flow into the support and assistance it provides to the primarily small and medium sized enterprises in Saxony. We do exactly what a small or medium sized enterprise cannot accomplish alone in its day-to-day business. We keep an eye on international markets and branch trends in the long run.

INFORMATION SERVICE

Those who want to be successful abroad should inform themselves about the potential market well in advance. What are the market opportunities? What risks can I expect? – In order to provide you with the requisite answers, we’ve pooled and compiled specific market information for you.

B2B EVENTS

An essential but difficult component for SMEs in entering global markets is to meet the right business partners and to maintain contact with them. One possibility for such contacts are branch and/or market related specialized events.

ENTREPRENEURIAL TRIPS

We’ll organize entrepreneurial trips for you not only to Saxony’s traditionally strong export partners in Europe and North America, but also to the growth markets in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. These trips are usually geared towards specific industrial branches.

DELEGATION TRIPS

Within the scope of the delegation trips organized by us on behalf of Saxony’s State Government, you’ll accompany Saxony’s Minister President and/or State Ministers to important decision makers from politics and business.

PROJECT PACKAGES

Together with its partners on site, the Saxony Economic Development Corporation (WFS) compiles long-term project packages on specific industry / technology topics which are associated with a concrete target market.

INDUSTRY-SPECIFIC SALES PROMOTION TOOL (BBA)

The BBA “brings” decision makers from important target markets to Saxony. This helps small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the Federal State of Saxony to establish and expand export-oriented contacts right on their “doorstep.”

PRESENTATION AT TECHNOLOGY TRADE SHOWS AROUND THE GLOBE

The so-called “Sachsen live” joint trade show booths at leading industry-related trade shows and exhibitions in Germany and abroad are organized by the Saxony Economic Development Corporation (WFS) on behalf of the Saxony State Ministry for Economic Affairs, Labor, and Transport (SMWA).

PRESENTATION AT TRADE SHOWS OF THE FOOD INDUSTRY

The Saxony State Ministry of the Environment and Agriculture (SMUL) supports enterprises of the food industry in presenting themselves at trade shows and exhibitions. On behalf of the SMUL, the “Sachsen genießen” [Enjoy Saxony] joint booths are hosted and organized by the Saxony Economic Development Corporation (WFS).
