Make International Connections

Work with the U.S. Department Of Commerce’s International Trade Administration while at GNYDM to make key international connections to increase sales.

The Greater New York Dental Meeting is a proud participant of the U.S. Department of Commerce's Trade Event Partnership Program (TEPP). The TEPP helps boost your international sales by connecting your business to U.S. Department of Commerce personnel located around the country and in U.S. embassies and consulates worldwide.

Export Counseling -  Through the TEPP, U.S. Department of Commerce international trade specialists are available to meet at the Greater New York Dental Meeting’s International Business Center to provide export counseling and information on business-to-business matchmaking services, top export markets and more.
