ILLINOIS TRADE EVENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES:

The U.S. Commercial Service in Chicago, Peoria and Rockford 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.
