U.S. Commercial Service – resources for going global January 2015
The U.S. Commercial Service is the trade promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration. U.S. Commercial Service trade professionals in over 100 U.S. cities and in more than 75 countries help U.S. companies get started in exporting or increase sales to new global markets.
The Commercial Service, along with other U.S. Government agencies, organize and support a broad range of events for U.S. businesses interested in selling their products and services overseas. These events include webinars and seminars on the fundamentals of exporting; counseling and other support at U.S. and international trade shows, recruitment of foreign buyer delegations to U.S. trade shows, and trade missions of U.S. delegates to foreign markets for one-on-one meetings with potential customers and partners.

Trade shows in the United States and abroad can help U.S. companies — especially those new to the export market — expand their reach to potential customers around the globe. Each year, the Commercial Service (CS) endorses international and U.S. trade shows that will provide the best exposure and marketing opportunities for U.S. companies and producers. The CS also provides participating companies with marketing and promotion services, market intelligence, logistical support, and on-site assistance.
