    June 23 - 27, 2018 | São Paulo, Brazil


    Enterprise Florida is hosting the first-ever Service Export Mission to São Paulo, Brazil. Services account for two-thirds of Brazil’s economy and, with their strong preference for doing business with Florida, our state’s service providers are ideally positioned for growth. 
    The U.S. Commercial Service will schedule one-on-one appointments with pre-screened companies in Brazil through their Gold Key Service. The Gold Key Service fee is $1,300 per company, however, small and medium-sized Florida companies may qualify for a Gold Key Grant from Enterprise Florida which will offset 100% of this fee.
