Make International Connections

The GNYDM is proud to partner with the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration  to make key international connections to increase sales and diversify your markets. 

The Greater New York Dental Meeting is a 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 industry and trade personnel located around the country and in U.S. Embassies and U.S. consulates worldwide.

Export Counseling:  Through the TEPP, International Trade Specialists from the U.S. Department of Commerce are available to meet at the International Business Center to provide export counseling and information on export readiness, identification of buyers overseas, qualification of buyers overseas, top export markets, international payment methods and more.

International Market Intelligence:  Also through the TEPP at the International Business Center, dental industry Commercial Specialists from U.S. Embassies and U.S. Consulates abroad will be available for 1-on-1 meetings (B2G) (also known as “Showtime”)  to get intelligence on markets abroad and best market entry strategies.

B2B Matchmaking:  Our dental industry Commercial Specialists are bringing qualified and vetted buyers from their countries as part of official delegations recruited by the U.S. Embassies and U.S. Consulates abroad.  Through this platform, you will be able to schedule B2B meetings with international buyers, looking for U.S. suppliers and providers.

Please sign up to participate in these programs.  There is no cost to you (you must be an exhibitor, however):  https://2022gnydm.itamatch.com/
