Outbound Missions

Each year the Trade Alliance organizes a Business and Trade Mission, as well as an International Study Mission, which is co-organized with the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce. The Trade Alliance also organizes a Cultural and Tourism Trip.

General Information
Promoting Greater Seattle in international markets and ensuring that the Seattle region maintains its place in the global economy requires contact with our business partners in target markets.

The Trade Alliance manages promotional and business missions to economic regions that have been selected by our Executive Board. Outbound missions include regional business leaders, small and medium-sized businesses and elected officials.
