e-Market Express

The e-Market Express is a monthly bulletin that contains an up-to-date listing of market research, trade leads and events generated by the world-wide network of the U.S. Commercial Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce. This bulletin was developed at the request of U.S. companies in order to provide a single point of entry to the most recent and relevant industry market research and event information created by our overseas staff.

Featured U.S. Exporters

Featured U.S. Exporters (or FUSE) is a directory of U.S. products featured on U.S. Commercial Services websites around the world. It gives your company an opportunity to target specific markets in the local language of business. Currently, listings are offered to qualified U.S. exporters seeking trade leads or representation in over 50 markets around the world. The nominal participation fee for one year (minimum $25) is based on the number of markets selected and translation requirements. You are required to choose at least 5 English language markets, or some other combination totaling $25 USD or more. Companies that wish to renew their listings may pay a reduced fee.

Want to see what a FUSE listing looks like? See this listing created for a U.S. manufacturer seeking a distributor for the Chilean market (note the text has been translated to the local language of business in Chile).

Show Time

Showtime is a service designed to help U.S. companies identify additional high-potential markets for their products while attending major Trade Shows. Showtime allows our clients to leverage their participation at a major trade event by meeting with Commercial Service Trade Advisor's from various countries to receive one-on-one counseling sessions on exporting to these markets.

Single Company Promotion

Our Single Company Promotion Service is designed to give a boost to any U.S. firm's efforts to launch a product or service overseas, find new customers, conduct a technical training program on their product or service, or otherwise get the word out about their capabilities.
