International Buyer Program Selects Trade Shows

Program aims to boost foreign buyer attendance at U.S. trade shows, helping create jobs and grow U.S. exports.

The International Trade Administration hosts an International Trade Center at each IBP show where foreign buyers can obtain assistance in identifying potential business partners, and meet with U.S. companies to negotiate and close deals. U.S. exhibitors can take advantage of interpreter services and face-to-face export counseling from overseas U.S. Commercial Service representatives, who usually accompany the visiting delegations from countries worldwide. Foreign buyers and U.S. exhibitors frequently take advantage of online business matchmaking services to connect and schedule meetings prior to the show.
