World Trade Center Utah (WTC Utah) is now accepting business registration for a trade mission trip to Mexico with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert during the week of April 9 through 13. The registration form can be found at and must be submitted by Jan. 31.

“Mexico’s trade agreements with the U.S. and close proximity to the state make it an ideal location for Utah companies looking to expand internationally,” said Derek B. Miller, president and CEO of WTC Utah. “Join us on the Mexico Trade Mission to explore the country’s business environment, make valuable connections and potentially sign business contracts.”

During the trade mission attendees will participate in market specific briefings and seminars by in-country experts and VIP networking receptions for business leaders and elected officials. Mexico is the 15th largest economy in the world and the fourth largest export market for Utah goods. Top Utah products to Mexico include transportation equipment, textiles and fabrics, food chemicals and electrical equipment.

The trade mission is hosted by WTC Utah in partnership with the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, the Small Business Administration and the U.S. Commercial Service.
