GDP Global offers a comprehensive range of consulting and representation services to international investment promotion agencies. We take the view that results can only be achieved when the objectives are realistic and the approach is carefully structured. Our customised services are centred in the key areas such as:

IPA analysis and strategy development

We are frequently involved in market research and agency benchmarking work prior the building of a new investment promotion strategy.

Investment opportunity search and investor targeting

This is the main service our IPA clients seek. After identifying priority sectors we create databases of potential investors and search for companies looking for the opportunities to expand into other markets. We approach only those companies where the match with the client’s regional strengths is strong. We meet with the decision makers in those companies and/or arrange direct meetings for our clients.

UK visit programmes

We arrange one-to-one and larger meetings with potential corporate investors in your priority sectors. We also organise visits to major European trade shows, conferences as well as with investors and intermediaries.

Local representation

We offer our staff and office for use as our client’s European or UK office and information point.

Advertising and PR

We help clients to devise cost-effective advertising campaigns. We also arrange for press conferences and individual press briefings in order to create valuable media coverage.

Staff training

For many of our clients we organise customised training programmes. For more details on training, please see our Training Pages.
