Trade Missions

AGMA hosts Trade Missions to countries outside the United States. These events provide Members a high-level perspective of our industry within the country visited. Missions include plant tours and meetings with key gear manufacturing contacts. Attendees of past events have come away with new perspectives, new techniques, and new business interests.

The most recent trade mission in 2018 was to China. AGMA traveled for 12 days in October. Eleven members participated in the trade mission and visited companies located in Beijing, Tianjin, Xi’an, Changzhou, Wuxi, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Ningbo, and Wenling City. Company tours, business meetings and dialogue gave delegates new knowledge into the Chinese gear market, potential trading partners and insight into how Chinese suppliers are operating in today’s business environment.
