What Are Some Examples of Trade Associations?

Trade associations include the Connecticut World Trade Association, CoreNet Global, Greater Akon Chamber, Produce Marketing Association and the Taiwan Trade Center. Trade associations are developed for a group of people who work together to promote their industry or key objectives of their business.

Trade associations can be leveraged for several reasons, including to help build awareness about a particular topic or issue. They may be leveraged in order to lobby against the government and certain laws or issues. Using a trade association, people may be more successful in arguing their points of views rather than doing it on an individual basis.
