Digital Missions are a series of trade missions organised Chinwag.
The missions support UK digital companies expand internationally, understand foreign markets, attract investment, find partners and develop business relationships.
Previous Digital Missions
Digital Mission to New York took place in September '08 and the mission to SXSWi in March '09. Both trips were very successful for the companies involved, with deals made and strong relationships forged both with US and international players and within the Digital Mission group.
Digital Mission to Web 2.0 Expo, New York took place from 15th-19th September 2008. Twenty-one UK companies travelled to the Big Apple for a string of high profile networking events, investor meetings, a masterclass on the nuts and bolts of doing business in the US and a very successful reception at the British Consulate. All this and more was organised alongside the world renowned Web 2.0 Expo New York.
Digital Mission to SXSW Interactive, Austin, Texas took place between 13th and 17th March 2009. This mission saw 34 UK digital SME's travel to the world’s most vibrant digital conference and festival; SXSW Interactive - where technology, design and business innovators mingle over hundreds of conference sessions and evening bashes.
In June and July '09 we hit the road for six regional events, for companies to come along and find out more about international expansion from the Digital Mission team, plus there were tales from companies who took part in past Digital Missions and tips from UK Trade & Investment.
