Textile And Sewn Products Industry Week 2010 Selected For IBP

The Department of Commerce’s (DOC’s) US Commercial Services Unit has chosen Textile and Sewn
Products Industry Week 2010 — featuring the co-located ATME-I/Megatex, SPESA Expo and Techtextil
North America trade shows — to participate in its International Buyers Program (IBP). The event is
one of only 35 trade events in 2010 selected for IBP.

Exhibitors and attendees of Textile and Sewn Products Industry Week, to be held May 18-20,
2010, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, will have expanded opportunities to meet and
network with international buyers, sales representatives and strategic partners. In addition,
exhibitors’ products and services will be promoted through the Export Interest Directory.
Exhibitors also will have access to international industry-specific trade leads, as well as export
counseling, marketing analysis and matchmaking services.

The US Commercial Services Unit — the trade promotion arm of the DOC’s International Trade
Administration — runs IBP to assist US companies in finding international business opportunities by
recruiting more than 125,000 foreign buyers, trade representatives and distributors worldwide to 35
US trade shows per year.
