PROVENTUS.COMsulting organizes bilateral business meetings in Portugal

Within a project aiming at the improvement of international trade activities by German SMEs, co-financed by the Germany Ministry of Economy, under the leadership of Come Across Berlin, PROVENTUS.COMsulting organized business encounters between nine German and several Portuguese companies between November 2011 and March 2012 in Portugal.

PROVENTUS.COMsulting prepared and accompanied various meetings, particularly with top-level representatives of Portuguese fresh and waste water utilities and related service providers, as well as a number of companies in the areas of food (incl. biological products) and distribution. One group of German companies used the opportunity to present their innovative technologies and solutions for efficient water management systems, while the other group introduced new lines of canned meat and biological and dietary food products.

The main focus of these entities was the development of long-term commercial and technological partnerships with Portuguese companies already active in the respective areas, as well as the promotion of joint projects in other markets, such as Portuguese-speaking countries in order to take advantage of the rich experience of some Portuguese companies there.

On November 22nd 2011, the Management Board of the Portuguese Association of Water Management received the German companies at the ENEG trade fair in Santarém. The German representatives then visited the fair where several business contacts to Portuguese exhibitors were established.

The participating German companies were very satisfied with the results of their visit to Portugal and the professional preparation and handling of their trip by the team of PROVENTUS.COMsulting. They were all able to use the high-quality encounters with representatives of as distinguished Portuguese companies as EPAL and AdP from water management as well as SONAE, Jerónimo Martins, and El Corte Inglés regarding food distribution to return to Germany with specific trade agreements.
