IBP to create new biz opportunities for exhibitors at SPESA EXPO

Apr '09
Textile and Sewn Products Industry Week 2010; which features three independent exhibitions, ATME-I/MEGATEX 2010, SPESA EXPO 2010, and TECHTEXTIL NORTH AMERICA 2010; has been selected as one of only thirty-five 2010 trade events for the coveted U.S. Commercial Service's International Buyer Program (IBP).

Each year, the IBP brings thousands of international buyers to meet with U.S. companies at major trade shows representing leading industrial sectors in the United States. Exhibitors and attendees of the three co-located shows on May 18-20, 2010 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia will benefit from the expanded opportunities that the IBP creates to meet, network, and develop relationships with international buyers, sales representatives, and strategic partners.

As the trade promotion arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce's International Trade Administration (ITA), the U.S. Commercial Service operates the IBP to help U.S. companies find new international business partners by recruiting more than 125,000 foreign buyers, representatives and distributors from all over the world to 35 U.S. trade shows per year.

In addition to the expanded international attendance that the IBP will bring, exhibitors in the three Textile and Sewn Products Industry Week 2010 events will also benefit from promotion of their products and services through an Export Interest Directory; access to hundreds of current international industry-specific trade leads; and export counseling, marketing analysis, and matchmaking services. An onsite International Business Center staffed by country and export specialists from the U.S. Commercial Service will arrange meetings for U.S. exporters and international delegates. IBP will also provide valuable assistance to international buyer delegations with the visa application process as well as hotel and travel packages.

“This valuable Department of Commerce Program will result in increased attendance from key countries around the world and create new business opportunities for both exhibitors and attendees,” stated American Textile Machinery Association (ATMA) Chairman Jay White, Jr. “Anyone who is in the textile business in the Americas should recognize that this is a 'must-attend' event.”

“We are honored to be selected for the International Buyers Program,” noted SPESA Managing Director Dave Gardner. “The program will exponentially increase business opportunities for everyone at SPESA EXPO through both increased international attendance and the valuable services offered by the U.S. Commercial Service.”

“Being selected as the only textile industry event to receive the International Buyers Program certification confirms the value that is being created for exhibitors and attendees at the Textile and Sewn Products Industry Week tri-location of the leading industry shows,” added David Audrain, President of Messe Frankfurt North America (organizer of TECHTEXTIL NORTH AMERICA).
