Italian term or phrase: missione imprenditoriale
The literal translation 'entrepreneurial mission' doesn't convince me and I didn't find enough hits to make me confident. My understanding is that it is basically a business conference in the country where various companies would like to do business but I don't know if there is a specific name in English. Does anyone have any other suggestions or is 'entrepreneurial mission' acceptable?

neutral  Paul O'Brien: Hi A. The asker says it's a business conference. Perhaps it doesn't mean the company mission, understood as it's guiding philosophy, but a group of people on a mission abroad (?).
