What our companies say

Fast growing startups like Sea Machines are often forced to choose between many competing promotional activities – The Maritime Alliance were indispensable in making this event the success it was.

Don Black
VP of Sales and Marketing, Sea Machines

TMA not only presented a cost effective opportunity to participate in a global event, but they provided incredible support and networking opportunities.  Plus, it was fun to be part of a community!

Carleen Walker
Chief Evolution Officer, SHIPPINGInsight

Having the support of TMA and the US Commercial services unlocked many doors and we all had a great time in the process!  We hope to continue joining TMA trade missions for many years to come.

What our companies say

TMA was able to organize a high visibility exhibit and facilitate industry networking. It resulted in a very valuable trade show for our company as we were able to obtain feedback on

our product, generate sales leads and gather international manufacturer representative contacts.

Charles Cousin
CEO, Greenwave Instruments

As a young small business, the programs offered by USMTEI, TMA, and ITA provided us with an invaluable opportunity to reach new customers and companies. We hope to participate again and would highly recommend the program.

Rusty Jehangir
Founder, Blue Robotics

TMA and ITA exceeded my expectations with the USMTEI. We had a packed schedule before,

at, and after Ocean Business meeting with companies and organizations in our industry. You would be hard pressed to find another way to open as many doors in such a short amount of time.
