by Carolina Arregoces

Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to expand your business into international markets!

The Auto Care Association, in partnership with the United States Commercial Service (USCS), is excited to offer U.S. companies promoting U.S. products a unique opportunity to participate in our International Matchmaking Virtual Program, June 27-29.

Through this program, companies can connect with international buyers and partners across the global automotive aftermarket industry. It is an effective resource for companies looking to explore or increase their presence in key export markets and to connect with pre-screened overseas prospects, distributors, buyers, importers, partners and industry multipliers that have been recruited by U.S. Embassy and Consulates throughout Latin America, Europe and Asia.

By participating in the program, companies will have access to one-on-one virtual meetings through an online platform managed by the Auto Care Association and USCS. These meetings provide excellent opportunities to increase sales and expand global reach.

To be eligible for this program, U.S. companies must promote exports of products and services with at least 51% U.S. content by value. Auto Care Association members can register for the program at no cost. After receiving an application, the U.S. Commercial Service will review it and notify companies of their acceptance into the matchmaking program.

The International Matchmaking Virtual Program is part of the Market Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) award the association received from the U.S. Department of Commerce to support the automotive aftermarket industry increase its exports.

The deadline to register is Tuesday, June 6, 2023.
