Vidya Desai is an International Trade Specialist with the International Buyer Program.
It’s a global market, and more and more small and medium-sized businesses are learning that they don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company to expand their global reach.
In the packaging and processing industries, it is especially lucrative to make international connections, and that is why the International Buyer Program (IBP) will have trade specialists from embassies around the world at the PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013.
PACK EXPO will have more than 26, 000 attendees from 127 countries, discussing the latest trends in packaging and processing in sectors from automotive to prepared foods. More than 1, 700 companies will be exhibiting, making this a great opportunity for businesses in the industry to make new business connections.
IBP will help U.S. companies get the most out of this trade show, arranging meetings with pre-screened international buyers, assessing market opportunities, and helping navigate customs and trade procedures. Come meet trade specialists and participate in meetings with foreign companies at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas this September!
Part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, IBP recruits thousands of qualified foreign buyers, sales representatives, and business partners to U.S. trade shows each year, giving U.S. companies excellent opportunities to expand business globally. We recently announced we’ll be bringing international buyers to 26 shows in 2014.
Here are some of the benefits of IBP services at PACK EXPO Las Vegas:
- Participate in face-to-face meetings with pre-screened international buyers;
- Save time and money by meeting international partners domestically;
- Get tips from international trade specialists on doing business abroad;
- Learn about trends and recent developments in the packaging and processing industries.
