TRADE MISSION TO BRAZIL: SAO PAULO AND RIO DE JANEIRO


LCCI is taking a select group of companies interested in exploring the business opportunities in the high-growth market of Brazil.

Brazil has just emerged from the 2014 Football World Cup, one of the biggest advertisements a country can have. It successfully showcased the country as a place of diversity, a place to visit, invest and do business in. This increased appeal, combined with Brazil's impending Olympic Games in 2016, makes it a market too big to ignore.

If you are a forward-thinking business looking at ways to improve your business potential, then Brazil is a market that needs your attention now to gain a competitive advantage over potential competitors.

Cities Sao Paulo and Rio Janeiro
Dates 2015, dates to be confirmed
