INTERNATIONAL BUYER PROGRAM

Connect with International Buyers at SupplySide West

SupplySide West is a proud participant of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Buyer Program (IBP). The IBP is a joint U.S. government-industry effort designed to encourage U.S. exports by promoting major U.S. industry exhibitions to international markets. SupplySide West has been selected by the U.S. Department of Commerce to host this program in 2017 for the fourth consecutive year.

International trade specialists from several U.S. Embassies and the U.S. Department of Commerce will be on site at SupplySide West to provide export counseling, matchmaking services, market analysis and more, as well as a U.S. Export Interest Directory.
