"The business development trip gave us the opportunity to identify the areas of the US Motorsport market that we wanted to get involved with. We were then introduced to the decision makers in those areas and as a result have been able to open discussions regarding supply into the US."
Zoe Timbrell, Sales & Marketing, Titan Motorsport & Automotive Engineering Ltd

"The BDV gave an insight into how the US Motorsport market works which is very different to how we operate in Europe. Included in the itinerary was a visit to a company we had been trying to do business with for many years.We feel that visiting with the MIA enhanced our credibility and this has in turn led to sales. We would certainly recommend this trip to anyone who was considering doing business in North America." 
Sandra Cunliffe, Director, D C Electronics
