International Trade Shows

BEMA’s involvement in key international trade shows is a direct result of survey responses and the Board of Director’s strategic plan. Our goal is to remove some of the barriers associated with exhibiting internationally and enable member companies of all sizes to enter foreign markets. Take advantage of the bank of research and turn-key international exhibit opportunities that BEMA is developing.


If you attend a show that would benefit other BEMA members or want to know more about a particular show, contact Kerwin Brown. To date, BEMA has researched opportunities in China, Brazil and the Middle East.
