Network with the World’s Leaders in Your Industry
Hawaii businesses are encouraged to meet with international buyers, representatives and distributors from around the world at the biggest and best trade shows in America. The Department of Commerce has selected 30 of the most outstanding trade shows from various industries and will be encouraging international attendance as part of their 2013 International Buyer Program.
Find the perfect international business partner for you! At the shows you will enjoy excellent networking opportunities and make your marketing dollars stretch further. To increase your visibility, the Department will list your company’s products and services in an export interest directory that will be distributed to all international participants.
Last year the IBP recruited nearly 13,500 prospective buyers from international markets to come to the IBP’s selected trade events. Don’t miss this year’s shows!
You can find your industry’s trade show in the list of participants here.
The International Buyer Program is a joint government-industry effort designed to increase U.S. export sales by promoting international attendance at major U.S. industry exhibitions as part of the Obama administration’s National Export Initiative.
