Business fair to link Costa Rican companies with buyers from 30 countries

July 30, 2013

Some 180 business leaders from 30 countries are signed up for the 15th edition of the Buyers Trade Mission (BTM), taking place Sept. 17-19, Costa Rica’s Foreign Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER) announced.

The event will be held at the Hotel Real InterContinental in Escazú, southwest of the capital, and aims to connect businesses offering products and services with international buyers.

Some 250 Costa Rican companies – mostly small and medium-sized – will offer export products.

The volume of business at the BTM has steadily increased in recent years, according to PROCOMER. The 2010 edition led to $35 million in business deals. In 2011, that figure increased to $38 million, and in 2012, deals reached $40 million.

Participating companies will present products in agricultural, food, metalworking, construction, plastics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors, as well as products for the aerospace and automotive industries.

Lectures by international participants also will be offered free to the general public.
