With one in four speakers at HydroVision International coming from outside of the U.S. and 67% of all the exhibitors in 2017 doing business globally, HydroVision is truly an international event.
In fact, this year’s HydroVision International — scheduled for June 26 to 28 in Charlotte, N.C., U.S. — boasts attendees from nearly 50 countries!
One important aspect of the international element of HydroVision is that this year’s event is an official U.S. Department of Commerce International Buyer Program event.
IBC is a joint government-industry effort that brings thousands of international buyers to the U.S. for business-to-business matchmaking with U.S. firms at major industry trade shows. Every year, the IBP results in about $1 billion in new business for U.S. companies, according to export.gov.
Delegations are coming to HydroVision International from 12 countries: Brazil, Canada, Congo, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Iceland, Italy, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Thailand and Uzbekistan.
And we have attendees from Australia to Vietnam.
For HydroVision attendees, this provides an opportunity to talk to delegates from outside the U.S., both buyers of U.S. products and services in the hydro and dams markets and hydro plant owners and operators and plant personnel.
