Trade Shows

Each year, FAS endorses the trade shows that will provide the best international exposure and marketing opportunities for U.S. companies and producers. FAS works with show organizers and other partners to create a “USA Pavilion” to showcase the variety and quality of made-in-America products to potential foreign buyers. FAS also provides participating companies with marketing and promotion services, market intelligence, logistical support, and on-site assistance.

More information about FAS-supported trade shows can be found below. In addition, FAS hosts virtual events that provide a user-friendly, online platform to help U.S. exporters showcase their products to potential foreign buyers. For more information, visit our Virtual Trade Events page.
