  • ICOMIA 2017 Equipment Distributors Database provides a list of equipment distributors in the ICOMIA member countries; a helpful resource for instigating international collaborations. NMMA Members can download the distributor database by logging in here.
  • International Data, Research, Economic Trends and Statistics – NMMA and ICOMIA publications highlight important quarterly economic statistics and trends by country.

With more than 95% of the world’s consumers located outside of Canada, exporting opens up a huge untapped market for Canadian businesses. Companies that export are more profitable, grow more quickly, and are better equipped to navigate economic downturns.

NMMA works to help marine businesses expand into the global marketplace through:

  • international programs
  • business-to-business connections
  • market research
  • exporter education
  • trade advocacy

As a member, NMMA’s Export Development Program is designed to help you grow your export business. We offer a variety of resources and services to help you tap into the world market, including Canadian pavilions at international shows, export counseling, international product certification, and export barrier and unfair trade assistance.  NMMA Canada from time to time also offers grant dollars from the Canadian government for export development by way of trade missions to various shows.
