What clients say


‘Thank you very much for all your help.  I had a great trade mission with 10 excellent meetings.  Once again I was very impressed by the professionalism of NITC in terms of the document, planning and the quality of the meetings.  Out of my 10 meetings I have already received 1 contract signed, agreed in principal to do new / additional business with a total of 8 companies.’
‘In summary I would describe this trade mission as “an outstanding success.’
‘We are deeply grateful to NITC and believe your services provide a very important way of developing export sales without which we would have struggled to have generated much by way for mainland European sales over the last few years.’

‘I’d like to thank you again for your help organising / advising / transporting / delivering and overall guidance for me on the trade visit.’

‘Just wanted to put on record a note of thanks for your help leading up to the trade visit last week.  I thought it was excellent.  The on-the-ground support from you both was much appreciated and I’m grateful for the extra graft put in to get me in front of key players. I hope it will lead to business, but that part is up to me.’

‘It is very clear to me that there has been a lot of careful planning and thought put into the Trade Mission’

‘We experienced a very efficient and professional service from NITC’

‘The quality of meetings I had was of an excellent standard, NITC really understood our brief and identified excellent prospects for our potential distributor. I would highly recommend NITC to do research and set up meetings for any company wishing to go on a trade mission to a new market/country.’

‘The visit allowed me to develop an in-depth knowledge of the market in Denmark & Sweden in that we knew what products were on offer, the price structure and whether our offering would fit the market place. It allowed us to know the market share of the retailers and to set up the appropriate meetings & tailor our presentation.’

‘Excellent – the market research resulted in several appointments which I hope to get business from in the next 6 months or so & also some potential customers to follow up later’.


“I would highly recommend Going Dutch as a premium programme, the research and quality of meetings arranged was phenomenal. This is the way to develop export business.”

“Going Dutch has demystified the whole export process for Hamilton Erskine.”

“The Playzeez product strap line is “little bags for big adventures” – as a small company the Going Dutch programme was the first big adventure into the Export market. We now have the confidence to move forward and hope to see our range of products selling in the Dutch market very soon.”

‘Participating on the the Going Dutch program was one of best things that ever happened to this company’

“The Going Dutch programme delivered 100%, exactly as described at the outset”.

“We would encourage any SME looking to or already in Export markets to consider the Going Dutch programme. The market research was excellent and the whole programme well formulated and facilitated by an excellent company – NITC.”

“Going Dutch has helped to get my business introduced into The Netherlands and potentially other EU Countries…all in 4 days!”

‘Going Dutch proved to be a golden opportunity, at just the right time for our company.’

“The Going Dutch programme headed by Steve Murnaghan has proved to be a great stepping stone for our continued expansion into the European market.”

‘Mainland Europe has always been a target for expanding our client base. Realising our aspirations has however been a daunting prospect to date. The Going Dutch Programme is the perfect way for companies to develop appropriate strategies for targeting new markets. I couldn’t recommend this programme highly enough!’

“Through the programme we have identified key companies who require products very similar to those used in the the UK and Irish markets. The information provided during Going Dutch in preparation for the meetings was vital.”

“Going Dutch has clearly signalled to our company that a market exists in the Netherlands and has signposted the main companies who could play a role in sales development.”

‘The Going Dutch Programme has not only opened up the Dutch Market to us but it has also given us the skills and confidence to apply what we have learned to other European Markets.’


““Czech it Out is a well-structured programme of market development, knowledge transfer and export support that gives companies, both new to export and those with some experience, a real hand to open doors in the market.”

“The Czech it Out programme provided our company with a wealth of information on Czech companies relevant to our business, the standard of the research & meetings organised was excellent.”

“The type and number and quality of meetings arranged was perfect for this visit as I had a good opportunity to visit a wide range of potential partners from small family run distributors to large wholesalers and pet stores.”

“The support offered by NITC was excellent from start to end in identifying potential partners and arranging the meetings combined with support on the ground while there.“

“Invest NI gave us a superb opportunity to meet with the right kind of company we wanted to deal with in a foreign market and took the strain out of a young company not having the right resource to make that sort of significant contact. With their local partners, we exceeded our expectation and we were able to deal with a local presence that was highly professional, skilled and championed us in the right way providing superb results.”

“NITC support was second to none. The meeting arrangements were excellent.”

‘Thanks once again for all your help last week. It was greatly appreciated, and I know the companies were very pleased with the quality of meetings they had.’

‘Just a short note to say thank you for a very well organised visit to the Czech Republic last week, the organisation displayed professionalism at its best which insured myself and the other participants were able to maximise the opportunity which were set out for us.’

‘The Czech it Out Programme provided an extremely valuable pathway to gaining an initial appraisal of the Central European market and its dynamics.’

‘The “Czech it Out” program gave us the opportunity to accelerate into a market we had no previous experience in, with the comprehensive research and planning by NITC my first trip was made a lot easier with a well planned meeting itinerary of quality end users & potential dealers.’

‘This is undoubtedly a streamlined approach to exploring new markets in a very professional format.’
