Japan Trade Mission & World Smart Energy Week (Waitlist Open until November 30, 2022)
The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development is planning an in-person clean energy trade mission to Japan from March 11-18, 2023. The trade mission will be co-led by California Lt.

The trade show exhibition cost will be subsidized by the California STEP program for eligible small businesses. Approved trade mission participants who are eligible for the STEP program may have the opportunity to co-exhibit at the California Pavilion at the trade show and promote their products and services to the Japanese market. Space is limited to eight small businesses and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
