Meet Commercial Service Officers from U.S. Embassies Around the World at a Special Event in Washington

Many U.S. Embassies around the world have Commercial Service officers on staff to help American companies sell their products in those countries. You could spend a fortune traveling to the embassies to meet these Commercial Service officers – or you could attend one event in Washington and meet dozens of them.

The event is called “Trade Winds” and it will be held on May 15th and 16th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Crystal City, VA, adjacent to Washington, DC.

In addition to offering a broad and interesting program

the conference also will provide pre-scheduled one-on-one consultations between U.S. companies and these Commercial Service officers posted overseas – something that would otherwise cost a company thousands of dollars and days, if not weeks, of time.

Africa, Europe and India will be areas of special focus during the conference.

Major speakers include:

Dr. David A. Sampson, Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Commerce

Paul Ostling, Chief Operating Officer, Ernst & Young Global

Rajesh Subramaniam, Senior Vice President, International Marketing, Fed Ex Services

Ambassador Franklin L. Lavin, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade

There will also be opportunities to network with hundreds of other leading companies from the private sector including:

Boeing BMW * Cargill General Electric * Northrop Grumman *Auntie Anne’s *Staples *Medtronic.
