Participation Options: Gold Key Package or Delegate Package
Gold Key Package
The U.S. Commercial Service will schedule one-on-one appointments with pre-screened companies in Bangkok and Manila that have expressed an interest in your product(s) or service(s). The price of this service is $2,600 for the Gold Key Registration and $800 for any additional company representatives. Gold Key participation will be limited to Florida manufacturers and professional service companies that best meet the participation criteria. Selection of these firms will be on a first-come, first-served basis by the U.S. Commercial Officer in both locations after a review to ensure market suitability.
The delegate option is for individuals interested in participating in mission activities but not the one-on-one business matchmaking. The price of this option is $800 per person. Delegates will have the opportunity to attend all mission events, have access to airport transfers in country when traveling on official mission flights and ground transportation to all mission events.
Trade Grants Available
Companies who qualify for the Gold Key as a “small business” based on SBA size standards may qualify for a Gold Key Grant from Enterprise Florida. The grant will reimburse 100% of the Gold Key Registration only. A separate online application will be provided to companies once they are approved by the USCS and EFI for the Gold Key Package as a small business to determine if they qualify for the grant.
