Trade Shows in the U.S.

The International Buyer Program (IBP) is a joint government-industry effort designed to increase U.S. export sales by promoting international attendance at major U.S. industry exhibitions. Through the IBP, the Department of Commerce recognizes leading U.S. trade shows in industries with high export potential. Events are selected annually through a collegial selection process that results in a worldwide commitment by Commercial Service to support events selected for participation. IBP events provide a venue for U.S. firms to market their products and services to increased numbers of international buyers visiting IBP shows.

Commercial Service overseas posts and State Department partner posts assist in promoting IBP events overseas to contacts in the local business and government community. If you are interested in visiting an IBP trade show, please contact the Embassy. Embassy sponsored delegations often benefit from extras such as pre-arranged site visits, matchmaking and assistance with logistics.
