CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2008 and IFPE 2008 Earn International Buyer Program Status from U.S. Government

Services Connect Global Buyers and Sellers

The CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2008 and co-located IFPE 2008 expositions have been selected by the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) to participate in its International Buyer Program (IBP).  The IBP will help bring international attendees to the shows and facilitate at-show connections with exhibitors wanting to sell to the global marketplace.

Only a few expositions are named to the IBP each year based on their status as quality events serving industries with excellent export potential.  Approximately 20 percent of show attendance to the co-located events is expected to come from outside the United States.

The IBP promotes selected trade shows to a worldwide audience through its Commercial Service International Posts and selected embassies and consulates.  Key activities under the IBP are Commerce Department recruitment of official trade delegations to attend the shows and a matchmaking service to facilitate buyer-seller interaction and onsite export counseling.

As part of the IBP, CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2008 and IFPE 2008 will operate a comprehensive International Trade Center during the shows, with services to include interpreters, a separate registration area, message centers, phone/fax/e-mail access, meeting rooms and a lounge area.  The shows will also provide assistance with travel and housing arrangements for international delegations.

The shows will produce an Export Opportunities Guide (print or electronic versions available) for distribution onsite and to Commerce Department international posts. The guide is designed to help attendees easily locate companies interested in doing business on a worldwide basis through export sales, agency relationships, distributor investment or joint ventures.

As part of the IBP agreement, CONEXPO-CON.AGG 2008 and IFPE 2008 in addition will offer show planning information and registration materials in several world languages via print brochures and on the show's websites.  Selected educational programming will also be offered with simultaneous interpretation into Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.

"The international attendance at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE illustrates the increasingly global scope of our industries, and the show's reputation as a quality destination to conduct business.  We are pleased to have the continued support of the U.S. Commerce Department," stated Petra Kaiser, director of international marketing for the shows.
