The U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce), in partnership with the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC), is recruiting international buyer delegations from 25 countries to attend OTC 2020. Delegations will be led by U.S. Embassy officials and include public and private sector representatives. 

To facilitate international trade and increase U.S. exports to these markets, Commerce is organizing the following complimentary programs for U.S. companies exhibiting at OTC:

Business-to-Business (B2B) Matchmaking Meetings

Meet with international buyers who are looking to partner with and buy from U.S. exhibitors at OTC. Commerce recruits international buyer delegates from around the world to attend OTC each year. Through Commerce’s online registration system, U.S. exhibitors and international buyer delegates can review each other’s profiles and then accept or reject meeting requests. This service can take place at the exhibitor’s booth or Commerce’s International Trade Center, NRG ARENA, Second Level, Room 2.

Business-to-Government (B2G) Market Counseling Meetings

Meet with U.S. Embassy Oil and Gas Commercial Specialists, to receive individualized export counseling on current trends; best market entry/expansion strategies; and opportunities for your business. These 30-minutes export counseling meetings can also address finding an appropriate overseas partner, effective international sales strategies, best practices for exporting, foreign regulations, and trade barriers. This is also an excellent opportunity for the U.S. Embassy delegation leads to introduce you to their international buyer delegates, who may be an appropriate fit for doing business with your company.
