On 11 and 12 November 2008 foreign trade service providers met at the new trade fair in Stuttgart. They met at Global Connect, the forum for international contacts and investments, one of the most modern marketplaces in Europe.
Global Connect is the most important event for foreign trade, and will in future be held every two years in alternation with the German Foreign Trade Day in Bremen.
At this event an 'Oscar' award has been set up for companies operating in international markets. This award recognizes outstanding achievements in foreign trade, successful strategies and innovations when advancing into overseas markets.
