International Trade Events and Networking Opportunities

International trade promotional events allow New Jersey companies to explore new markets, identify new business opportunities, secure distributors, agents and partners in strategic foreign markets. The State of New Jersey organizes and promotes international business development missions, trade shows and partnering opportunities, organized by local, federal and foreign entities.

Trade Missions

Participating in a trade mission provides New Jersey companies with an opportunity to meet high-level business and government executives face-to-face, greatly enhancing the potential for future business opportunities.

Trade Exhibitions

The State organizes, participates and sponsors market and industry specific exhibitions of State-produced goods and services in overseas markets. The State works with companies to identify the appropriate trade show and opportunity to market New Jersey products or services and can also arrange pre-qualified meetings with interested buyers and distributors.

Catalog Shows

Catalog shows are an alternative low-cost way for New Jersey companies to gain exposure and develop leads in a new market. The State will represent New Jersey businesses to interested buyers or their representatives, distribute company literature and provide leads.

Business Networking with Inbound Foreign Buying Missions

The State works with foreign governments to host incoming buying missions from the international business community. These delegations have a particular industry focus from which they will buy. The State assists New Jersey companies to identify suitable trading partners.

Networking and Educational Seminars

Throughout the year, the State hosts a variety of International Trade Seminars geared to targeted New Jersey businesses, who wish to learn how to expand their products and services to the global marketplace. A schedule of upcoming seminars can be found by clicking here.
