Trade mission in Paris in November 2018
The mmode Cluster is organizing a trade mission in Paris from November 13 to 16, 2018, in collaboration with Global Affairs Canada and the Canadian Embassy in Paris.

A look back on the last Export Working Group meeting
Following the presentation of a guest speaker from EDC, the postmortem of the 2018 MAGIC Las Vegas mission was presented to the members of the working committee. The Working Group made the recommendation to renew the initiative for the February 2019 edition and this proposal was accepted by mmode's Board in early June. The organizing committee will be set up in the coming weeks.

A success for the inter-cluster mission in London!
From June 13th to 16th, the TechnoMontréal and mmode clusters led an opportunity mission in London as part of the London Tech Week. The participating companies have not only met their objectives, but the success of the initiative is such that the formation of an inter-cluster committee focusing on FashionTech and RetailTech is already in evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to get involved. We would like to thank our participating members as well as our partners, Montréal International and the British Consulate-General in Montreal, who contributed to the success of the mission.
