Securing a sustainable and diversified export sector for Trinidad and Tobago

Participation in TIC 2017 achieved a twinning of two exporTT strategic objectives, increasing non-energy exports through the hosting of an Inwards Buyers’ Mission and increasing the number of exporters through the showcasing of twelve potential / new exporters.

Catering to the needs of all Exporters, exporTT focuses not only on building internationally competitive firms, but also improving the business environment, as well as harnessing the differentiating factors that set Trinidad and Tobago exporters apart in the global market place.   All company initiatives are aimed at developing a sustainable and diversified export sector for Trinidad and Tobago.


Hosting the Inward Buyers’ Missions is one of the key services provided by exporTT.  For the first time in the history of TIC, exporTT has brought to the table a focused International Buyers Mission, targeted at specific sectors. We are pleased to welcome nine Buyers from seven countries featuring Canada, Dominican Republic, USA, Martinique, Cuba, Suriname, Jamaica and Cuba. These Buyers, having gone through a rigourous screening process were selected from many applicants representing the Food & Beverage, Printing and Packaging, Construction, Personal Care products and Cleaning Chemicals sectors.

As an added advantage to secure preferred Buyers, an incentive for their participation was provided by exporTT.  These included -

  1. 50% Discounted Airfare
  2. 3 nights Hotel Accommodation inclusive of a Continental Breakfast
  3. Airport Transfers & Transfers to TIC 2017
  4. Matchmaking Meetings coordinated by TTMA

Similar to the warmth of our beautiful twin island republic, exporTT didn’t hold back in being hospitable to its visitors.  From having a personal welcome party at the airport, to assisted hotel check-in, complete with a welcome package and assigned Liaison Officers Buyers will be treated to a total VIP service. 

The backstage of the main hall was transformed into a VIP Lounge fitting for our International Buyers.  Described as elegant, exporTT in partnership with Depth Services Limited worked tirelessly to perfect every square inch of this storage area to create a masterpiece fitting of this esteemed event.

As an added advantage Food and Beverage Exporters to the US, will get an opportunity to hear from two Buyers who are Speciality Food experts:  Mr. Derryck Cok, CEO International Trade Promotion Limited and Mr. Tim Bascombe, President & CEO World Food Connection In. Together this power team will share with Exporters how to navigate the USA Food Market.  The seminar is scheduled for Friday 6th July at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Trincity.


Equally important is increasing the number of exporters within Trinidad and Tobago. Enabling export readiness therefore forms a critical part of the work at exporTT. exporTT’s Pavilion (P3) was procured with the main aim of allowing new and potential exporters in the goods and services sector the opportunity to showcase the best of their offerings. Featured at the Pavilion for the B2B meeting days are Twiggs Naturals, Exotic Mountain Pride, RCS International (Services), Perfect Peppers, KDF & Associates Limited (Services) and Slimdown 360. B2C days will see Haberano Pepper Sauce, Lashley’s Exotic Wine, The Exquizite Islander, Soular and two Services companies Ixanos and Dingole.   Profiles of each company can be accessed at Who are the EXPORTERS under the exporTT Pavilion? - TIC 2017

The expectation is great.  exporTT looks forward to hearing great reviews from Exporters on their relationships developed, leads generated and/or deals secured over the duration of the Convention.
