There are three main ways for U.S. companies to advertise in Brazil: through a U.S. public relations firm with an office in Brazil, a local PR company in Brazil, or direct contact with a local newspaper or magazine - some of which have a dedicated international department. With its well established and diversified industrial sector, Brazil has a variety of specialized publications that can provide excellent advertising outlets that target a multitude of trade and consumer audiences. TV advertising can be an especially important marketing channel for Brazil’s growing consumer base. The top advertising categories by expenditure are trade and commerce, consumer services, culture, leisure, sports and tourism, media and public and social services.

Trade fairs are another important marketing tool. The city of São Paulo hosts around 300 trade fairs per year. Other principal cities host significant shows as well, e.g. Rio for the oil and gas industry and Belo Horizonte for mining. These events attract many visitors and exhibitors from Brazil and foreign countries. Specialists from the CS Brazil participate in many of these events, and can help you arrange meetings with potential agents, distributors, lawyers and customers at these trade shows.
