DISCOVER GLOBAL MARKETS – SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS

The U.S. Commercial Service, in cooperation with NASA, will host a dynamic, three-day business forum in Silicon Valley, February 9-11, 2015, focused on opportunities for U.S. companies to meet global demand for sustainable solutions. The conference will address the link between advanced research and innovation, global business and planetary sustainability. Countries and companies worldwide are implementing standards, developing new technology, and implementing business practices to conserve energy, preserve clean air and water, and use land more efficiently – and U.S. companies can take advantage of these trends by offering world-class technologies, services and products.

In order to effectively compete internationally, U.S. firms require specialized market knowledge and contacts. Discover Global Markets: Sustainable Solutions will provide the access, information and forum for U.S. companies to discover new international market opportunities, and also the tools and business relationships to effectively pursue them with success.
