How to sell your product or service in Europe?

With over 700 million inhabitants who are relatively affluent Europe offers a huge potential to sell your goods or services. But Europe is not one market, it consists of 44 countries, ranging from huge territories like Germany to small islands like Malta.

Business etiquette in (Western) Europe

In Europe, punctuality is highly valued, so always strive to arrive on time for meetings and appointments. Handshakes are the customary form of greeting, usually firm but not overly aggressive. Maintaining eye contact during conversations demonstrates sincerity and attentiveness. Business attire tends to be conservative and formal, so dress sharply to make a good impression. Additionally, respecting personal space is important, so avoid standing too close or touching colleagues unnecessarily. Lastly, business discussions often involve thorough analysis and decision-making processes, so be prepared for detailed negotiations and expect a focus on building long-term relationships rather than quick deals.

South European business culture

In South Europe, encompassing countries like Italy, Spain, Greece, and Portugal, relationships are paramount in business dealings. Building trust and establishing personal connections often precede formal negotiations. Business meetings frequently take place over meals or coffee, providing an opportunity for informal conversation and relationship-building. It’s common for discussions to be lively and passionate, reflecting the expressive nature of these cultures.

What business culture to expect in East Europe?

In East Europe, including countries such as Russia, Poland, Ukraine, and Hungary, business culture is characterized by a blend of formality and informality. While relationships are important, there is often a greater emphasis on professionalism and competency in business dealings. Meetings tend to be more structured and formal, with an expectation of punctuality and adherence to agendas. Business attire is typically conservative, and it’s essential to maintain a professional demeanor throughout interactions. Decision-making processes may be more centralized, with authority often resting with top executives or government officials.
