Our worldwide team is here to assist with your international business. To find your local building/construction specialist, please click on the link to the left titled “Local USDOC Offices”.

  • Greenbuild & sustainable development
  • Interior design

Our Design & Construction Team members can assist you with the following:

  • International Market Research – our overseas specialists generate reports on the building/construction sector of target markets around the world. You can access these reports by contacting your local building/construction specialist. Please also see our Top Markets report on Building Products by clicking the link to the left.
  • Trade Missions & Events – We regularly develop and lead trade missions and events for the design services sector along with key industry associations. These missions provide market access and unrivaled exposure for firms seeking international projects.
  • Webinars – learn about the design sector in a market of interest without leaving your desk.
  • Advocacy – the Advocacy Center coordinates U.S. Government (USG) resources to level the playing field on behalf of U.S. business interests as they compete against foreign firms for government contracts or other U.S. export opportunities.
  • Gold Key Service – provides business meetings with pre-screened contacts, developers, firms, professional associations, government contacts, and/or licensing or joint venture partners.  Through the GKS program, Commercial Service staff will search for and arrange appointments with potential foreign partners in key markets.
  • Single Company Promotion – provides support and official sponsorship in a specific market under the auspices of the American Embassy or Consulate.  Commercial Service staff overseas assists a U.S. company in organizing a product launch, technical seminar, cocktail reception, or similar event in a well-recognized location, such as a hotel or in some cases, the U.S. Ambassador's residence.  A typical event might include a 3-hour program with an introduction by a U.S. Government official followed by detailed company presentation and question/answer session followed by a networking session.  The SCP is an excellent opportunity to support your existing in-country representative by co-presenting to a targeted audience.

Led by a senior executive of the Department of Commerce or other U.S. Government agency, the trade mission will include one-on-one business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors and joint venture partners; meetings with national and regional government officials, chambers of commerce, and business groups; and networking receptions for companies and trade associations representing companies interested in expansion into the North African and Middle Eastern markets.
