Participation Fees

The International Buyer Program (IBP) is an excellent value, enabling you to offer your U.S. exhibitors one-stop access to U.S. government export assistance while simultaneously enhancing your show’s overseas visibility and a new level of global credibility. There is no fee to apply to the IBP. Payment is required upon notification of acceptance.

Participation Base Fees

  • For shows five days or less and requiring one International Business Center, the participation fee is $8,000.
  • For shows more than five days, or requiring two International Business Centers (e.g., for two or more co-located events), the participation fee is $14,000.
  • For shows 10 days or more in duration, and/or requiring more than two International Business Centers, the participation fee will be negotiated, but shall not be less than $19,500.
