About MITA

MITA is a Madison, Wisconsin-based organization that began in 1979 with a simple goal to assist Wisconsin businesses to succeed in international trade. Our initial vision endures today as MITA offers a forum for connecting people and providing global knowledge and resources to its members. 

We are focused on providing current, relevant and vital global trade information to the organizations and individuals looking to expand their international reach. We do this by producing quality programming with subject experts from around the country. From trade agreements to export documentation to economic trends, and hot topics, MITA keeps its members informed and engaged.  

While MITA started in Madison, Wisconsin, we have expanded our membership and reach beyond Wisconsin to serve companies in neighboring Midwestern states.
