Trade Victoria, through its Victorian Invitation Program (VIP) is bringing carefully selected business leaders from around the world to Victoria for a two week program of events in March 2016. This tailored program across multiple sectors, is a great way for potential export partners to experience first-hand what the state has to offer.

The delegates will meet with Victorian businesses across fashion and retail, medical technology and pharmaceuticals, education, food and fibre, water and new energy technology sectors.

VIP also brings together top export experts to deliver export training workshops to local businesses, giving them skills and information to ensure they are ready for export.

The VIP program is just another way that Trade Victoria is ensuring Victoria remains globally competitive and globally connected.
