"The Trade Mission is a great format - you’re spending time reflecting on the market with business partners from breakfast until late at night at the bar having a beer. I can’t think of ever having participated in a more informative format than this!” - Partner //// Voltiq

“SolarPlaza people know how to organize an event, and they deliver what they promise in terms of contacts, content and market knowledge. This kind of seminar is extremely helpful, for how it is structured, when you need to approach an opening market with no previous local support and a lot to learn in a very short time.” - GM Project Management /// JA Solar
