Visiting Delegations at 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show Here to Buy Your Products!January 6, 2011
Vidya Desai is an International Trade Specialist with the U.S. Commercial Service International Buyer Program.
I am writing to you from the bustling International Commerce Center (ICC), here at the 2011 International CES, one of the largest consumer electronics show in the world. It is opening day of the show and thousands of people are anxiously awaiting the opening of the show floor. Among these thousands are 34 foreign buyer delegations recruited by the Commercial Service International Buyer Program (IBP). There are over 700 IBP recruited delegates from key markets, including buyers from China, Brazil, Vietnam, who have traveled the distance to make deals with U.S. companies.
We have several meetings scheduled between U.S. exhibitors and overseas Commercial Specialists. These meetings help educate U.S. companies about the overseas markets to see if their products can succeed. If you’re a U.S. exhibitor at CES and want to take advantage of this service, it’s not too late! Stop by the ICC in the South Hall Connector, Room S224/S225 to request a meeting.
In addition to all the buzz around the ICC, Commerce Secretary Locke will be visiting the show today! Secretary Locke will be speaking at one of the session at the Tech Policy Summit this morning. It is just the beginning of an exciting four days here at CES and we hope to help make your visit to CES a success!
