The Tampa Hillsborough EDC coordinates a variety of events aimed at increasing export opportunities for local companies and marketing our region globally.


Outbound Trade Missions

The Tampa Hillsborough EDC as the Tampa Bay Export Alliance, coordinates high quality trade and business development missions to targeted international markets.  These overseas programs connect U.S. firms directly with potential clients.   We partner with the US Department of Commerce to facilitate one-on-one matchmaking meetings for exporters, and also help to offset the cost to participants thru state and local grant programs.
