International trade events and programs can help you meet potential overseas customers, and learn more about exporting from trade specialists and other exporters.
(Note: Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Georgia DEC and its partner organizations are primarily offering virtual events and programs at this time.)
We are very excited to announce that applications for the 2021 Atlanta Metro Export Challenge (Atlanta MEC) are now open.
The Atlanta MEC is a year-long program to assist metro Atlanta companies in their global business development efforts. Through the program, selected companies receive a reimbursement grant of $5,000 that can be used for expenses related to their international business growth. They also benefit from a tailored mentorship program to assist in the development of global sales plans and go-to market strategies.

Go Global Georgia, launched in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration, provides reimbursement funding to eligible Georgia exporters for pre-approved export activities. Most companies are eligible for reimbursement of up to 50% of actual export costs, up to a maximum award of $6,000. The initiative is intended to increase the number of small businesses that export, assist with export development and expand international sales.
