Trade Events

The U.S. Commercial Service in Georgia organizes and supports conferences, seminars, and events to educate our clients and promote international trade. Our goal is to help local U.S. exporters sell globally. A sampling of our events includes:

  • Executive briefings in our office with one of our visiting Commercial Service Officers from around the world.
  • Educational export seminars and online webinars.
  • Matchmaking and export counseling services at international trade shows overseas and the U.S.

By organizing trade missions and educational seminars; providing matching or export counseling services at trade shows; and recruiting buyer delegations to U.S. trade shows, the U.S. Government helps U.S. exporters expand global sales at trade events.

Conference Overview:

Join the U.S. Commercial Service, the export promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, and the Georgia District Export Council for Discover Global Markets: Sub-Saharan Africa.

This premier business conference will help you to transform market potential to market success. The two-day business conference has been designed for U.S. executives who want to explore new export market development strategies, innovative tools to promote competitiveness and success, and the dynamic and emerging markets of Sub-Saharan Africa.

Discover Global Markets: Sub-Saharan Africa will feature high-ranking U.S. government officials, visiting U.S. commercial diplomats posted at U.S. Embassies throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, and international business leaders from the private sector. Experts on trade finance, market entry strategies, risk mitigation, and a broad array of industry sectors, including oil and gas, agribusiness, healthcare, information technology, franchising, and consumer goods, will alert attendees to recent and anticipated developments that will impact where—and how—to develop new business opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa.
