Mission économique

Monday 16 Mar 2015 > Wednesday 18 Mar 2015

Montreal, Canada

The Chamber of Commerce of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg will organize a trade mission to Canada. The mission will take place in Montreal from March 16 to 18, 2015 in the framework of the Americana trade fair to which an accompanied visit will be organised. Because of this focus event, the delegation is meant to be comprised primarily of companies from the clean tech and innovation sectors as well as from the Business mentoring program of the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.

The participants will visit the International Environmental Technology Trade show, Americana. This trade show is recognized as one of the leading multisectorial events of its kind in North America. It is a forum for the exchange of knowledge and practical experience, providing environmental and economic solutions. Americana will celebrate its 20th anniversary and will gather around 350 exhibitors, 200 speakers and 10,000 participants from more than 50 countries under the theme of “Sharing Innovation”.

During the mission, participating companies from Luxembourg may request tailor-made business meetings with local companies or institutions. A networking reception and various opportunities to meet key players in Montreal will be provided.

Greater Montreal's business environment is favorable to innovative companies working in the field of clean technology that seek sustained growth on export markets. Together, the province of Quebec and its economic centre Greater Montreal enjoy a strong potential in clean tech thanks to the province's natural market, a critical mass of engineering and high-quality training available to engineers and technicians. Quebec is well known for its creativity and high-tech industries - such as aerospace and life sciences - and is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the clean technology sector with its more than 500 SMEs and 200 R&D centers in various sub-sectors.
