International Buyer Program
A number of services are offered to international attendees to make the most of their experiences at the show.

U.S. Commercial Service overseas staffs, located at U.S. embassies and consulates throughout the world, work to recruit and bring to the show foreign buyer delegations, and help organize their plans. Several official DOC delegations from all over the world have been recruited to attend, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Ecuador, India, Iraq, Kazakhstan, South Korea, Mongolia, Canada, Mexico, Thailand, Dominican Republic, and Philippines, to name a few.

Trade specialists from the U.S. Commercial Service manage the International Business Center (IBC), located in the front of the Central Hall‹an area where international buyers may negotiate with sellers, obtain advice on appropriate matches, and use the facility as a launching pad for "walking the show floor."

This assistance includes export counseling, market research, matchmaking, prearranged business appointments abroad through its Gold Key Service, advocacy, videoconferencing, international partner searches, trade events, and more.
