U.S. Commercial Service
If you are from a foreign country and are planning to attend POWER-GEN International 2011, the U.S. Commercial Service office of the American Embassy/Consulate in your country offers free business assistance to qualified companies. Firms that do business outside the United States, but are interested in attending the IPE/IFE to find U.S. suppliers of goods and services, are considered to be “qualified companies.”
The U.S. Commercial Service offices overseas can assist you in gaining the most of this exposition with friendly assistance in your own language; help finding U.S. suppliers before, during and after the show; help arranging hotel and travel packages; assistance with VISA application procedures where necessary; and much more. Plus, your company will receive complimentary admission to the trade show when you are part of a qualified delegation.
