While the markets in Southeast Asia are becoming increasingly interesting for European start-ups and companies, young companies from Southeast Asia, especially in the organic food sector and in the innovative start-up scene, are increasingly setting their sights on the European markets. This creates great opportunities, but are also major challenges for companies. Not only intercultural differences, but also the different requirements of the markets in Europe and Southeast Asia must be taken into account. Last but not least, legal regulations, quality requirements and controls, DIN values, limits and traceability of supply chains, etc. are important to be successful in a market. SEABS was created to provide a platform for these trends.

In order to give companies an opportunity to exchange information about the conditions and requirements in Europe or Southeast Asia or to find suitable cooperation partners, the Sou'East Asian Business Stage was officially launched in March 2021 in the presence of representatives of the Chamber of Commerce, the Lakeside Technology Park and the ambassadors of Thailand and Vietnam.

What does the business stage provide:

The Sou'East Asian Business Stage will not be a one-way street of lecturers. Rather, it is intended to encourage discussion and mutual exchange. Various workshops will be offered for this purpose. Special events will be offered for female entrepreneurs, young start-ups, or information events on special funding programs of the respective partner countries.

The Sou’East Asia Business stage will provide a floor for:
