As part of the U.S. Commercial Service’s International Buyer Program (IBP), companies exhibiting at Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) will have access to a series of complimentary export-related services and programs through the U.S. Department of Commerce. IBP helps international buyers find U.S. suppliers by first identifying prominent trade exhibitions like ASRW and then, in conjunction with the show team, connecting exhibiting companies with international buyers, providing leads, trade counseling and market research. IBP also will recruit foreign buyers, sales representatives and business partners to ASRW.
All services, personnel and resources provided through the IBP are free to all participants. ASRW 2012, comprised of the CARS and NACE shows, is scheduled for Oct. 10-13 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. U.S. firms exhibiting at ASRW that are interested in exporting their products and services overseas can contact Darrin Cayton at (972) 536-6308 for more information or for assistance in connecting with an IBP automotive specialist dedicated specifically to ASRW.
