Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Department of Commerce Montreal Trade Mission.  It was a positive experience.    It was a good assembly of potential investors and general partners.  I appreciate being amongst those invited.

More than anything else I found it educational to learn about the activity in the Canadian Capital market.  It is now very much on my radar.  Most impressive for me today was two different people emailed their colleagues right there while at the table to connect with others in the Montreal community today or tomorrow.

Our company has been involved with foreign investors for over 30 years. It typically takes several years and multiple visits to have high quality meetings with investors in a new country. This conference was incredibly valuable to us because it allowed us to accomplish this in one day instead of over a prolonged period of time.

It is often difficult to initiate doing business in a foreign country for the first time. Katsof Consulting did all of the legwork and created an efficient forum for all parties to interact in a productive manner. This was a great experience, and I highly recommend to anyone who is interested in conducting business in a foreign country to participate in similar future events.

We found the trade mission to be a very worthy endeavor. We had a number of meaningful meetings with defined follow up and next steps. The Katsof organization did a superb job with the arrangements.

We attended the Trade Mission to Hong Kong organized by Katsof Consulting. The event was organized beautifully, ran seamlessly and provided an extraordinary opportunity to meet a slate of qualified potential investors with a particular interest in our strategy. The price-performance ratio was also spot on—meeting the same number of investors outside of a trade mission program would have required at least three trips of three days each (without accounting for the cost of developing the investor relationships required to make the meetings worthwhile).

To have had the opportunity to present multi million dollar Manhattan Properties to Multi billion dollar pension investors, is something we appreciated immensely. Thank you for that opportunity.

The Trade Mission was a good use of time and money. I met several potential investors, and the time I spent with other GP’s was very helpful. The mission was well organized and made efficient use of our time. I look forward to participating in the future.

The Trade Mission was a great opportunity to build key business relationships with institutional and private investors in Hong Kong.  Katsof Consulting did an excellent job organizing the event.  I look forward to participating in the Montreal mission, as well as other potential opportunities with Irwin and his team.
