New Program Provides Global Opportunities for ASRW Participants

As part of the U.S. Commercial Service’s International Buyer Program (IBP), companies exhibiting in Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) 2012 now have access to a host of complimentary export-related services and programs through the U.S. Department of Commerce. ASRW 2012, comprised of the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS), is scheduled for Oct. 10-13 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La.

The IBP, a unique program through the U.S. Department of Commerce, the International Trade Administration and the U.S. Commercial Service (the trade promotion arm of the International Trade Administration), helps international buyers find U.S. suppliers by first identifying prominent trade exhibitions like ASRW they determine are good venues for developing new business relationships. The U.S. Commercial Service staff, in conjunction with the ASRW team, will work in the months leading up to ASRW to connect exhibiting companies with international buyers – providing leads, trade counseling and market research.

The IBP will also recruit foreign buyers, sales representatives and business partners to ASRW 2012, giving exhibitors opportunities to expand business globally. All services, personnel and resources provided through the IBP are complimentary to all participants.

"We’re thrilled not only to have received the prestigious honor of the IBP this year, but also about the vast opportunities it brings for the companies who exhibit in ASRW," stated Lindsay Roberts, ASRW show director. "Being able to connect exhibitors with the caliber and quantity of resources available through the IBP – all complimentary to the exhibitor – aligns well with our commitment to provide all exhibiting companies with a profitable, successful experience at ASRW."

ASRW 2012 will also feature an International Trade Center on-site where Commerce Department staff will facilitate meetings between attendees and exhibitors.


More information:

U.S. firms exhibiting at ASRW 2012 who are interested in exporting their products and services overseas are encouraged to contact Darrin Cayton at (972) 536-6308 for more information, or for assistance in connecting with an IBP automotive specialist dedicated specifically to ASRW.
