You don't want to miss the most important Travel & Tourism trade events. We identify the top shows, and then we work with the organizers to provide special added value - such as US Pavilions - for U.S. companies that participate. Commercial Service staff attend the shows, and often provide matchmaking services for U.S. companies. U.S. shows that are part of the Department of Commerce's International Buyer Program will feature overseas delegations and an International Business Center staffed by Department of Commerce employees.
