Trade Shows
Attending a trade show to meet potential buyers and exhibit your product can be one of the best ways to increase international sales.

Trade Shows

Find buyers at U.S. and international trade shows. Trade shows are “shop windows” where thousands of companies from many countries display their goods and services. They are a marketplace where buyers and sellers can meet with mutual convenience. 

Trade shows can benefit your export strategy in several ways:  

  • Present your products and services to a wide audience (especially if it’s better for buyers to view them in person),
  • Get trade leads,
  • Meet with numerous potential buyers or partners,
  • Check out the competition, and
  • Leverage U.S. or state government support. 

Trade Show Calendar 

There are many shows in the U.S. and in foreign countries. The U.S. Commercial Service has services to enhance your trade show experience.

At the U.S.-themed pavilions of many foreign trade shows, U.S. Commercial Service trade professionals assist American businesses by facilitating access to foreign buyers, agents, and industry representatives. Services often include pre-show industry/country market briefings, one-on-one export counseling, onsite promotion, and more.
