U.S. Food Showcase (USFS) continues to offer exhibitors new perspectives on the global marketplace. Our goal is to help you arrange high value meetings at a reasonable cost and to provide the background information you need to make intelligent decisions when pursuing international opportunities. National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA), working with our partners at the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) and four State Regional Trade Groups (SRTGs), will continue to offer pre-show and on-site export assistance, information and programs. USFS attracts international attendees from every continent in the world. Many USFS exhibitors have found USFS to be a perfect segue to other programs offered through FAS and the SRTGs. USFS, held in conjunction with the Food Marketing Institute's (FMI) Supermarket Industry Exposition, is a great way for you to explore the growing number of opportunities and learn about overcoming the challenges of export sales.
