The Caribbean region represents a market of 27 million people who imported over $21 billion of U.S. goods in 2018. The region is the third largest export market for U.S. manufactured goods in Latin America behind only Mexico and Brazil. The Caribbean region is a natural commercial partner of the United States, tied closely by geography, history, and culture. The 2020 Trade Americas program offers U.S. companies the opportunity to explore fourteen markets in the Caribbean region.

The combination of participation in the Trade Americas conference and business-to-business matchmaking appointments in one or two markets with a pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors or joint-venture partners in Caribbean countries will provide participants with access to strategies for expanding their business across the region. By attending this conference, U.S. companies will be able to:

  • Gain market insights
  • Make industry contacts
  • Solidify business strategies
  • Advance specific projects
  • Identify potential partners
