The International Buyer Program (IBP) is a joint government-industry effort that brings thousands of international buyers to the United States for business-to-business matchmaking with U.S. firms exhibiting at major industry trade shows.
Every year, the IBP results in approximately a billion dollars in new business for U.S. companies, and increased international attendance for participating U.S. trade show organizers. Refer to the 2015 IBP brochure for the specific dates and locations of supported trade shows.
During the Discover Global Markets: Europe Business Forum, participants engaged in one-on-one consultations with U.S. Commercial Diplomats for Europe, Turkey and Russia, as well as attended dynamic market exploration sessions and high-profile keynote speakers. This unique opportunity took place in Los Angeles on June 2-4, 2014.
