Trade Events

The U.S. Commercial Service in Birmingham organizes and supports conferences, seminars, and events to educate our clients and promote international trade. Working with our Export Alabama Alliance members our goal is to help local U.S. exporters sell globally. Our events include:

  • Conferences around the state featuring one of our visiting Commercial Service Officers from around the world.
  • Educational export seminars and online webinars.
  • Matchmaking and export counseling services at international trade shows overseas and the U.S.

By organizing trade missions and educational seminars; providing matching or export counseling services at trade shows; and recruiting buyer delegations to U.S. trade shows, the U.S. Government helps U.S. exporters expand global sales at trade events.
