AMENITIES: The Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce will feature a catalog/sample booth at the show. Included in the package of services is the collection of leads that will be sent to each company in a spreadsheet after the show, promotion of samples, and the opportunity for pre-, concurrent, and post-show publicity for your company.
COST: $900 for 4-5 samples not to exceed 20 yards or four book samples, company literature and business cards. Shipment of samples to and from Eurosatory 2014 is the responsibility of the participant. You will be able to ship to a DPO mailing address if samples are sent on a timely basis; otherwise courier packages can be delivered to the U.S. Commercial Service Office in Paris. We can offer shipping information for the show upon request.
WHY SHOULD YOU EXHIBIT? For one week, the entire "supply chain" can be found at the show. Eurosatory 2014 brings together companies of all sizes, subcontractors, suppliers, decision-makers and buyers from countries across the globe, to network and establish new business. Our results at the International Defense and Exhibit and Conference (IDEX 2013) in Abu Dhabi, UAE and DSEI 2013 in London, and Milipol Paris 2013 and other recent military shows have indicated a strong demand for military textiles and apparel ranging from apparel to geotextiles. Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your network and advance your knowledge!
