Jérôme Pischella, Consul and Trade Commissioner, Consulate General of Canada in Los Angeles

We had worked with Mike in the past to help organize B2B sessions between Canadian food manufacturers and U.S. buyers and distributors. Mike’s services had come highly recommended. Despite tight deadlines, Mike and his team were able to secure pertinent meetings with the stakeholders that we were seeking for an event at Expo West. He organized a seamless session with excellent feedback from all attendees. The turnaround was extremely satisfactory. Some attending clients have already indicated having signed contracts with some of the stakeholders that Mike gathered. Mike is excellent at communicating during all stages of planification. He is not afraid to point out issues so they can be corrected prior to the event. His knowledge of the industry is impressive. I would highly recommend IBDC and expect to work with them again in the future. The group is very professional and efficient.

Our organization, a member of a European program AGROSMARTglobal, had to organize a trade mission for European agri-food companies in the United States. We were looking for a company, or a specialist in the US food and beverage market. We chose IBDC because of their expertise and the ability to speak several languages. We had to build a program for a short trade mission over three days in the US for French, Portuguese, Spanish wine companies. IBDC helped us build a program with different options which gave the companies the opportunity to visit a US Trade Fair connected to the wine sector – VINEXPO AND DRINKS AMERICA New York. IBDC organized a store check at wine and beverage stores and met with the participants to share market insights, recommendations and up-to-date data on the US wine and beverage market. The turnaround was very positive and satisfactory. Some companies plan to have a booth at Vinexpo next year. We really appreciated the different exchanges with IBDC for the preparation of this mission, and the quality of the information they shared, as well as the organization on-site. IBDC is a reliable and professional partner in the U
