iXPOS - A Platform for Foreign Companies Interested in the German Market
iXPOS – The German Business Portal presents its newly revamped website featuring not only a new design but also an expanded content and advanced functionality to serve a wider international community.
One Portal - Two Target Audiences
The new iXPOS Portal now offers the traditional German section “Ihr Geschäft im Ausland” for German companies looking for information on foreign markets, as well as an English section “Your Business in Germany”, which is targeted to foreign companies hoping to tap into the German market. The new English section contains the merged content of the already known “German Business Portal”, which was the platform offering information about Germany, its industry sectors, market entry requirements, and supporting institutions. Furthermore, all functions of the e-trade-center, the international online marketplace in Germany, have been integrated, improved and expanded into the iXPOS Export Community.
iXPOS Export Community
The main feature of iXPOS is the Export Community. On this online community, visitors can search for business partners worldwide as well as post their business inquiries. After a successful registration, the new Export Community enables visitors to create a personal profile, participate in the forum, communicate with other members, and post business offers, free of charge. Social media functions also play an important role on iXPOS: users can share content with their networks and are able to discuss topics on the iXPOS Forum.
The Export Community serves as a B2B marketplace where companies specifically interested in buying or selling their products/services or finding new business contacts can benefit by entering their offers. Furthermore, registered members have the possibility of bookmarking interesting business inquiries or contacting potential business partners directly.
iXPOS, an already established name in the German foreign trade sector, has for many years been the information platform for German companies interested in entering foreign markets. The portal was initiated by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology in cooperation with members of the German Foreign Trade Service Network. Today, iXPOS counts with over 70 members, including government institutions, industry associations, Chambers of Industry and Commerce as well as embassies and international organizations that promote foreign trade between Germany and the rest of the world.
