CONNECT WITH U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AT CES 2023
 

CES is a proud participant of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Trade Event Partnership Program (TEPP). Through the U.S. Commercial Service’s network of offices in U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide, the TEPP recruits pre-screened foreign buyer delegations and brings them to selected tradeshows in the United States, connecting U.S. companies with international buyers.

Commercial service trade specialists located in your local embassy or consulate can assist you with show registration, help you locate the products you are looking to purchase at the show, and assist in setting up meetings with you and U.S. businesses. As part of the TEPP, many foreign commercial specialists lead delegations to CES 2023.
