Connect with vetted, high-level international buyers through the U.S. Commercial Service’s flagship annual event!
This year’s Discover Global Markets (DGM) event in Rhode Island – an integrated marine economy with an emphasis on information and communications technology, will help companies with unique technologies seeking to expand their presence abroad.
With a focus on the key pillars of marine renewables and cross-cutting clean tech solutions, port technology & services, ocean science & technology, and commercial marine sectors, U.S. providers in related sectors such as:
Industry experts and decision makers operating at the nexus of land and ocean-based water challenges will be on hand to counsel companies and actively seek cutting-edge U.S. technologies in this important and rapidly expanding space.
DGM is a flagship domestic event where the U.S. Commercial Service brings its staff from U.S. Embassies and Consulates around the world for consultations, and more importantly, introductions to key foreign government officials, port operators, OEMs and partners. It’s a great one-stop event to collect market intel, hear about project pipelines, and make important contacts. It is not a trade show, but a business program with one-on-one matchmaking among the ~300 delegates and US suppliers.
OEMs confirmed to date: General Dynamics Electric Boat, Wabtec, Equinor, KVH Industries, Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems, Teledyne Marine, and Orsted.
International Delegates List is growing, with select companies and their US sourcing/partnering objectives here.
The Discover Global Markets: The Blue Economy will be kicked off by the Secretary of Commerce, and has full U.S. Department of Commerce support. For the past 16 iterations, DGM has been an exceptionally successful event providing long-term export success for attendees. Each year it has a different industry focus and this is the first emphasizing the marine sector.
