At A+A 2011, International Trade Fair for Safety, Security and Health at Work, U.S. and Canadian companies will have the opportunity to exhibit within a North American Pavilion, organized by Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA) and supported by the National Safety Council (NSC), according to a recent press release. Exhibitor applications for the North American Pavilion are available from MDNA. A+A will be held from October 18 - 21, 2011 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The North American Pavilion provides a cost-effective means for U.S. and Canadian companies to enter into or to expand their business in the lucrative overseas marketplace. The pavilion turnkey rental package includes a fully furnished booth, access to an attractive lounge area and the on-site service of a project manager, hostesses and interpreters. All technical work, set up and dismantling is included. In addition, U.S. Commercial Service staff will be on hand in the North American Pavilion to assist with export and licensing questions.

Exhibiting within a North American Pavilion at one of the specialized industrial trade shows held in Düsseldorf, Germany, has proven to be the ideal way for small-to-medium sized companies to make a greater impact at a large trade show and is a most effective way to begin or increase overseas trade, the press release states. Exhibitors at trade shows in Düsseldorf are able to reach over 200 million consumers living within 1.5 hours flight time from Düsseldorf. Almost 45 percent of all EC citizens live within a radius of 300 miles.
