The U.S. Commercial Service of the U.S. Department of Commerce and Kallman Worldwide are organizing an Aviation and Airport Trade Mission to Brazil and Chile on March 26-29, 2012. The mission is designed for representatives from U.S. firms specializing in all facets of aviation parts, manufacturing, support, airport equipment and logistics.

Why Brazil? Brazil is the fifth largest aviation market in the world with more than 190 million potential passengers. The country continues to experience significant economic growth; coupled with a positive investment climate, Brazil represents serious business potential for U.S. exporters. The U.S. Department of Commerce and other market reports cite airplane and helicopter parts and components for defense and executive aircraft as the areas with most promise. In addition, increased requirements for security and law enforcement improvements, fueled in part by the World Cup and Olympic Games, also present immediate potential for U.S. product and service suppliers.

 

As a participant in the Aviation and Airport Trade Mission to Brazil and Chile, you will benefit from the following:

  • Welcome Reception on March 25th in Sao Paulo
  • Doing Business in Brazil briefing on March 26th with U.S. Embassy and senior industry leaders
  • Minimum of four (4) one-on-one meetings with industry decision makers in Brazil
  • Networking events and other group presentations in both in Brazil and Chile
  • Doing Business In Chile presentation on March 28
  • Networking lunch with Air Force Logistics Commanders from all over Latin America (gathered for the FIDAE exhibition)
  • One-on-one meetings with leading Chilean firms representing and acting as agents for U.S. suppliers
  • VIP event (U.S. VIP Reception) the evening of the 28th with potential follow-on meetings at the FIDAE show on the 29th

Cost: US$6,500 ($5500 for registered FIDAE exhibitors) inclusive of in-country transportation and interpreter services.

*please note that each participant is responsible for their own airfare, hotel and meal costs (excluding planned events or receptions). Information on the host hotel in each country will be supplied as soon as possible.

APPLICATION PROCESS – Registration is now closed.

Prospective participants must supply a completed TRADE MISSION APPLICATION Form no later than January 15, 2012. The U.S. Department of Commerce will review and confirm that they will be able to match your requirements with potential in-country buyers/representatives. Upon acceptance of the APPLICATION, Mission participants will confirm their involvement with a non-refundable payment of the appropriate fee. Deadline for acceptance is NLT February 15, 2012 – six weeks in advance of the first meetings in Brazil. During this period we will be supplying essential background material that will enable you to “hit the ground running” in March.
