Trade Events

Trade Events provide venues for U.S. exporters to meet international buyers, distributors, or representatives.

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.
