Make it in Manhattan


Glasgow Chamber of Commerce (GCoC) has been establishing a number of strategic agreements with chambers in cities and regions around the world where there are opportunities for collaboration between member companies.  This includes New York, Milan and Nuremberg with a number of others agreements in development.    

In order to realise the practical business benefits from these strategic relationships we are organising a series of visits to enable businesses to investigate new markets and international business opportunities.   We want to ensure that businesses in Scotland gain access to international markets and establish collaborative commercial relationships to support profitable business growth.

We are recruiting growth oriented ambitious businesses to participate in a second visit to New York in March 2018 in partnership with Manhattan Chamber of Commerce (MCoC).   

Glasgow and Manhattan Chambers of Commerce are committed to assisting with this process in a direct and results focused way. The core feature of the Make it in Manhattan visit will be business to business meetings.   These will be arranged through a business matching process conducted by Manhattan Chamber of Commerce (MCoC).  The visit will also give participating businesses formal and informal opportunities to network and acquire valuable contacts.
