USDOC’s International Buyer Program brought 1000+ delegates to SPI 2018, and on we are on target to exceed that number in 2019
The International Buyer Program (IBP) benefits U.S.-based exhibitors by bringing overseas delegations to meet with U.S. exhibitors to make connections that lead to export partnerships and export sales.
Solar Power International (SPI), Energy Storage International (ESI), and North America Smart Energy Week are participating in the IBP for a fourth year in a row; a complimentary export program which brings more than 1,000 international attendees to SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week to meet with U.S. exhibitors to increase export partnerships and export sales.

The IBP is an opportunity for U.S. exhibitors to make international connections through an exclusive matchmaking program. Meet with over 30 delegations onsite at SPI, ESI, and North America Smart Energy Week. More details coming soon!
