Arcimedia is dedicated to transforming your destination by bringing you trade and investment through the world’s most formative business events.
Our connections with Trade Promotion Organisations, NGOs and municipal development authorities have been built over more than a decade writing about emerging markets and innovation, visiting and working with destinations both as trade journalists in search of a good story, and on the commercial front in order to produce editorial campaigns.
Our sister business WMM (Where Markets Meet) specialises in helping businesses expand their profile overseas.
Through direct matchmaking and advocacy, it puts your business in front of the right partners and investors. And by selecting them from cities and countries with an economic profile that matches the trajectory of your business, it gives you the greatest chance of sustainable growth.
By working with carefully selected agencies and partners around the world, WMM finds the companies able to take your business to the next level; a goal that can take a lifetime to achieve.
A former trade and industry journalist, Antony Reeve-Crook's work brings him face-to-face with destinations vying for innovators, investors and the trade promotion bodies that drive economic growth on both sides.
WMM helps you to find partners for your product or service in other markets, through direct connection and advocacy. You tell us the business partnerships you are looking to make and the industries in which you are hoping to expand, and we will bring you into dialogue with the people who can help your business to grow.
By working with a series of overseas partners and agencies - Trade Promotion Organisations, NGOs and municipal development authorities, relationships built over more than a decade spent writing about emerging markets and innovation - we can ensure you are presented only with potential partners and investors that have the capability to specifically benefit your company.
We have particular strength in Asia, particularly China, Singapore and Thailand, where we work hard to find local language partners able to adapt our approach to accommodate local trends and sensibilities. But recent business also took us to Scandinavia, North America, Latin America and the Middle East. Business strategy differs a great deal depending on where in the world you are. It is no good making initial communication via email in China for example. Know the markets as we do and you will find that the right doors open much more easily.
Think of us as a business exchange, a trade show where only the people you need to meet are in the room.
