CHARLOTTETOWN – May 24, 2017 – RDÉE Prince Edward Island is looking for eight Island business that have an ability do carry out business in French to participate in a third sales mission to Montreal Oct. 23-27, 2017.
“Our first two sales mission to Montreal generated exceptional results: more than $400,000 in sales as well as several other major contracts that are still being negotiated,” reports RDÉE mission co-ordinator Robert Maddix. “We are therefore looking to continue to multiply these successes.”
He explains that participating businesses must have a product or service that is ready or almost ready to be shipped and sold to the Montreal marketplace.
Businesses accepted for the mission will receive the visit of a consultant who will gather in-depth details about the products or services to be sold. He will then fix meetings for each Island participant with a minimum of eight potential buyers.
Participants will have to pay 60 per cent of their lodging and transportation costs (so between $750-$850). All other costs will be covered.
“If you consider that the 14 participants at our first two missions obtained average sales of more than $28,000, you’ll see that this is a great return on investment,” adds Maddix.
