Certification From The U. S. Department Of Commerce (USDOC)

  PennWell’s Brazil power generation, transmission and distribution events -- POWER-GEN Brasil, HydroVision Brasil, and DistribuTECH Brasil  -- have been granted  “Trade Fair Certification” by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

"The ONLY Power Events in Brazil Trade Certified by the U.S. Government!"

What does “Trade Fair Certification” mean?
Simple! The U.S. government only certifies events which are proven to deliver a high-quality, multi-faceted opportunity for American companies to successfully market their products or services overseas.

The U.S. Department of Commerce's Trade Fair Certification program is a cooperative partnership arrangement between private sector business-to-business event organizers and the U.S. government.

The objective of the program is to increase U.S. exports and to expand U.S. participation in overseas events featuring an exhibition (i.e., trade fair) component.

PennWell and the U.S. Government are committed to work together to increase the number of Export Successes (sales and partnership agreements) generated at the three co-located PennWell do Brasil events in September 2013 (POWER-GEN Brasil / HydroVision Brasil / DistribuTECH Brasil).

Why certification by the U.S. Department of Commerce is important?
The certification means these events have the official endorsement of the U.S. government – official “seal of approval,” so to speak.

For the Power sector, these are THE events the U.S. government points companies to as “must attend”.
