Leadership in Netherlands and Flanders decided in the spring of 2015 that their U.S. trade mission would be held in Atlanta and was set to focus only on two industries: information security and logistics. After a number of meetings, ATPC successfully persuaded the Netherlands Embassy representatives in Washington, D.C. to add FinTech to their trade mission agenda.
The Coalition organized and scheduled tours of several area companies for the delegation during their October visit. This allowed the ATPC to present several of its member companies to the group as Elavon, Worldpay and Cardlytics agreed to host.
Premier ATPC supporters Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr were very pleased that ATPC was able to get FinTech added to the Trade Mission Agenda.
