Virtual Trade Missions

A proven out-of-the-box UK market-entry trade mission for EDO, FDI & Trade Organisations

UK Market-Entry

Unique Opportunity

With many sectors set to enjoy a post-covid bounce, and the acceleration of the adoption of video meeting technology, there has never been a better time for EDO/FDIs to run a virtual trade mission for market-entry into the UK. At GTM we've developed VT Mission, a customisable, white-label virtual mission, out-of-the box and raring to go!

Key elements of VT Mission include workshops, breakout sessions, group webinars and 1-2-1 meetings on a range of mission critical subjects:


  • Go-To-Market strategy
  • Business plans & budgeting
  • The UK marketplace
  • Sector research/expertise
  • Accessing channels
  • Incorporation & tax planning

Business Development

  • Strategic sales
  • Customers & prospects
  • Channel partners
  • Distributors & agents
  • Supply chain partners
  • Representation


  • Location & workspaces
  • Legal & accounting
  • Staff & recruitment
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Banking & investment
  • IP protection & insurances

VT Mission utilises GTM Global's data platform to capture, analyse & disseminate vital delegate information to stakeholders. The GTM team works with founders to develop bespoke market-entry plans & a schedule of meetings to deliver their mission objectives. This process starts up to six weeks before the actual mission and culminates with a 5-day virtual trade mission:


A bespoke landing page for promotion purposes plus registration form with comprehensive data capture.


A pre-mission consultation with the founders/C-suite to explore business status & mission objectives.


Post interviews, the GTM team develop outline go-to-market plans for each delegate company.


Potential customers & partners are identified & meetings organised for the mission.


A mix of education, advice, guidance, connections, introductions & 121 meetings.


A 5 day programme of online meetings, break-out sessions & 121 meetings with mission-critical stakeholders.

The mission programme is developed throughout this design & on-boarding process. A typical programme is shown below:

We deliver successful missions through a combination of determined planning; finding the right connections across our extensive business networks; connecting to the right-sized partners to deliver relevant & affordable advice. And importantly, post-mission, we continue to develop opportunities for the mission delegates, securing new business and identifying strategic opportunities. It's part of the service that comes with joining the GTM ecosystem!

As GenXys looks at expansion beyond Canada and the US, GTM Global was instrumental in market entry planning and validation we needed for the UK. Having a whizzy innovative product is not enough; you also need the right people, processes, and market knowledge to really make a successful entrance.
