Cities: Rio de Janeiro and Recife, Brazil
Dates: October 7-10, 2013

The United States Department of Commerce with support from the American Institute of Architects is organizing an Architecture Services Trade Mission to Brazil, October 7 to 10, 2013.

Best Prospects

Our industry experts have determined that firms with the following architectural design expertise have the best opportunity to succeed in the market:

  • Port design
  • Airport design
  • Industrial design for manufacturing plants
  • Healthcare facilities, including hospitals
  • Lighting design for commercial use
  • Urban planning (mixed neighborhood design, technology and equipment for “smart cities”)
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM) Process

Mission Goals

The goal of this mission is to American firms and associations/organizations gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects, with the goal of increasing U.S. exports of services to Brazil.

Why Participate?

The mission will include one-on-one business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors and joint venture partners; meetings with state and local government officials and industry leaders; and networking events. Participating in an official U.S. industry delegation, rather than traveling to Brazil on their own, will enhance the companies’ ability to secure meetings in Brazil.
