MBJ staff

The Mississippi Development Authority will lead a delegation of Mississippi companies and economic developers on a business development mission to Hannover, Germany from April 25-29 to participate in the world’s largest industrial trade show, Hannover Messe. The event features more than 6,500 exhibitors, more than 220,000 visitors from 70 countries and more than 100 business “buyer delegations” looking for new, innovative products.

Hannover Messe will provide unique opportunities for Mississippi businesses and economic development organizations that want to expand trade, create new business relationships and attract foreign direct investment from one of the world’s largest economies. With a focus on industrial technology, the trade show attracts exhibitors and buyers from a range of sectors.

“Hannover Messe is a cost-effective opportunity for the state’s economic developers to attract foreign direct investment to their communities. This event will also allow Mississippi companies to initiate or expand trade relationships with businesses worldwide,” MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough Jr. said in a news release.

The U.S. Small Business Administration-funded Mississippi State Trade Export Promotion program reimburses eligible businesses up to 50 percent of travel costs, including airfare, lodging and per diem. Participation also includes minimal booth space fees, and advertising, media exposure and networking events at no cost.

The deadline to register is Feb. 19. For more information or to obtain a registration form, please contact MDA’s European Trade Specialist Aggie Sikora at (601) 359-2952 or (769) 798-5434 or asikora@mississippi.org
