Department of Commerce Services to U.S. Exhibitors at ITB

The U.S. Commercial Service, the business facilitation agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the Visit USA Committee Germany, your partner in the German market promoting travel & tourism to the United States, are now working together to support your efforts to attract more German visitors to the United States by providing a range of services to you before, during and after ITB 2002.

BEFORE ITB
Your local U.S. Export Assistance Center (USEAC) is available for a free business counseling session on the export promotion programs of the U.S. Commercial Service (CS), including market research on the German market for travel & tourism to the United States. Go to www.usatrade.gov and click on “Contact Us” for the address of your nearest USEAC. See also our web sites www.buyusa.de for ITB information, www.usatrade.gov for market research and http://tinet.ita.doc.gov for tourism statistics. CS Germany and the Visit USA Committee Germany are outreaching on your behalf, through www.vusa-germany.de, inviting European tour operators to visit all 256 U.S. exhibitors in the See America Pavilion, and offering to coordinate appointment requests for them with you.

DURING ITB
Members of our Showcase Europe Travel & Tourism team will be on hand with information and contacts in their markets, and our Visit USA Committee Germany along with partners from many of Europe’s Visit USA Committees will provide information on their activities. The U.S. Commercial Service Business Information Office in booth 541 in the See America Pavilion has information on our export promotion programs. By briefing us on your products and services, we can better help you find business partners in Germany. Visit the Visit USA Committee Germany in booth 539 where we can provide you with information on promotional events throughout Europe such as travel shows, travel agency training breakfast seminars, and marketing opportunities such as the 50 Stars campaign (see www.50-sterne.de).

AFTER ITB
CS and VUSA staff can help you follow up with contacts made, to give greater assurance that promising leads develop into business success. We can also assist in developing new leads and in expanding into additional markets.

We look forward to seeing you at ITB, and to helping you meet your business objectives. Your main contacts in Germany are:
