One of our unique selling points is the combination of market and industry expertise for your export success. Our teams work together across departments. We do what a medium-sized company cannot do alone in day-to-day business operations: We keep a long-term eye on international markets and industry trends and evaluate them for Saxony's economy. This enables us to offer you customized, technology-specific foreign trade activities. You are also welcome to tell us about your individual concerns.



Since our foundation in 1991, we have organized about 370 business trips with over 4,150 participants to support the sales efforts of Saxon companies and has presented approx. 6,200 exhibitors from Saxony at more than 420 trade fairs as part of joint stands.



Politics can be an effective door opener, especially in new and growth markets. It is often an important part of international economic relations to "show your face" in the long term and sustainably. As part of the delegation trips we organize on behalf of the Saxon state government, you will accompany Saxony's Minister President and / or the state ministers to important decision-makers from politics and business.



We have your individual concerns firmly in mind right from the start: We take your needs and suggestions into account as early as the planning stage of our activities. If you register with us early, you can help determine the program and B2B dates. Our market and industry experts will inform you about the target market and find potential partners for B2B meetings. We are also supported by our long-standing local partners. We offer you support with travel planning, accompany you throughout the entire trip and are happy to evaluate the results together with you.



Here you benefit from the fact that we, as a company of the Free State of Saxony, are an instrument for the sustainable promotion of the Saxon economy. This means that we can enable you to participate in our activities at a competitive participation fee - the expertise of our competent partners in the target market (e.g. AHKs) is included. You will have to bear your own travel costs, but here too we usually support you with recommendations or pre-booked contingents.


Our Partners in International Business

We are one of the founding partners of the Saxony Foreign Trade Initiative (AWIS). AWIS coordinates the work of the most important foreign trade players in Saxony - e.g. the chambers of industry and commerce and the chambers of crafts. Important partners for us are also the "contact partners / representatives of Saxony's economy" in eight countries worldwide, which are managed by us.
