SMMT business visit to USA and Mexico

16 July 2009 #SMMT News

Recognising the magnitude of the American and Mexican automotive markets, SMMT is planning a two-country business group visit to the region. Leaving on 2 November, the week long visit will focus on the development of business relationships between Britain and North American countries.


The trip will kick off in Las Vegas for the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week, which gathers over 4,000 exhibitors and 100,000 international visitors. The two main attractions are the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo and the SEMA Show, a specialty performance product show. The events offer a unique opportunity to meet automotive buyers and sellers from the entire North American market.


From Las Vegas, the group will travel to the key automotive centres of Monterrey and Mexico City, Mexico. Matchmaking visits will be arranged and tailored for individual companies depending on specific interests. While in Mexico, group members will be supported by SMMT’s bi-lingual event manager, both in planning itineraries and during visits within the market. 


SMMT aims to help the British automotive industry successfully conduct business around the world. Whether researching a new market, seeking overseas investment or partnership opportunities, or looking for specific business leads, SMMT can offer advice and practical assistance to all members.
