About the International Buyer Program

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Buyer Program (IBP) connects international buyers with U.S. companies exhibiting their products and services at top U.S. trade shows in major industries. Through our business matchmaking service, you receive unparalleled, face-to-face access to those U.S. suppliers most suitable to satisfy your business needs. We eliminate language and cultural barriers so that non-U.S. buyers have the best chance to find opportunities with U.S. companies.
