The Department for International Trade (DIT), Invest in Andorra (Actua), and the Chamber of Commerce in Andorra are joining forces to offer a trade mission to quality British high street brands to sell in Andorra.

Why attend?

With 8 million visitors a year and 54% of them stating that “shopping” is their main reason for visiting, Andorra offers a huge commercial opportunity for top British brands.

Tourism and commerce are the pillars of Andorra's economy. Tourists are mostly Spanish and French and they stay for an average of 3 days. 1,371 shops are present in Andorra and most of them are concentrated in 2 km along the main avenue, Avinguda Meritxell.

It is a year-round destination with top ski resorts as well as with activity plans and world cultural events throughout the year.

Andorra, at the core of the Pyrenees, is a unique country, with low taxes and an advantageous fiscal framework, which imports almost everything.

Are you a UK retailer ready to succeed in the Andorran market? Join us for two days full of business opportunities and activities to meet the key buyers in the Andorran retail market.

The programme will allow you to build client networks, have one-to-one meetings with buyers, listen to the experts in the market and understand the shopping experience in Andorra.

We look forward to meeting you!
