Participation in domestic trade events is a great way to get connected to your local exporting community and to cultivate valuable relationships with trade experts, service providers, and other businesses.  These events focus on critical “need-to-know” topics and range from small webinars and seminars, to major national conferences and specific industry focused trade shows.

We promote select U.S. trade events to local Kiwi business contacts as well as recruit a New Zealand delegation. Therefore, these events can be valuable place to identify and meet with motivated Kiwi business professionals looking to source U.S.-made products, technologies, and equipment.
