MKB Trade Office


About us

The MKB trade office is the export hub for small and middle-sized businesses in the east of The Netherlands. Our mission is to stimulate international trade between companies in the Stedendriehoek  – Apeldoorn, Deventer, Zutphen and surrounding areas – and the rest of the world. We organise numerous activities to promote this, including workshops focussing on a specific country, trade missions and one-to-one brainstorming sessions for MKB entrepreneurs eager to expand abroad. 

Export Hub for SME's in the East of The Netherlands.

If you represent an economic region outside The Netherlands and are interested in teaming up with us, let us know. We are always keen to come into contact to explore possible cooperation. This can take many forms: a workshop on a specific country, a trade mission back or forth, or a structured partnership such as the one we have with Unternehmerverband Rostock-Mittleres Mecklenburg e.V. in Germany.  


On this website you can see which companies in our thriving region already operate oversees. You can find out who they are, which products and services they export and to where, and their ambitions for the future.

If you spot a business that strikes a chord with you, do not hesitate to get in touch directly or ask us to make the introductions.  Equally, if you are looking for a commercial agent to promote your products or services in The Netherlands, just contact us. We have an extensive network which we can galvanize on your behalf.

For SME’s from abroad the MKB Tradeoffice helps with :

  • International Matchmaking
  • Trade missions
  • International (online) meetings
