The Office of Economic and Small Business Development is tasked with not only promoting Broward County as a business destination for companies around the world, but to also introduce new international markets to Broward companies to explore as a possible location to do business. The OESBD researches, plans and coordinates at least one outbound trade mission a year as well as hosts multiple inbound business delegations from all over the world.
Often inbound missions spawn following a visit from a city that a Broward County delegation visited during an outbound mission. Broward County receives inbound delegations from various countries seeking clients, considering the area as a new location for their business, or looking for Broward-based companies to develop joint ventures.
The OESBD coordinates at least one outbound mission a year from Broward County into a foreign country. The destination country is chosen based on current economic and political trends as well as compatibility its top industries with Broward’s. Broward County Trade Missions, led by the Broward County Mayor or designee, include business to business meetings, meetings with top government leaders, and networking events and receptions.
