Technology Association
(CTA) today announced that the United States
Department of Commerce (USDOC) has granted Trade Fair Certification for CES
Asia 2018

This certification is a formal federal endorsement of CES Asia as a
recognized opportunity to showcase U.S. products and services. It is
granted by the USDOC, which will provide promotional outreach to expand
U.S. exhibitor participation. Trade Fair Certification also benefits
buyers and companies that seek to import products and technology from
the United States.

Owned and produced by CTA and co-produced by Shanghai Intex, CES Asia
2018 will run from June 13-15, in Shanghai, China.

“This recertification and endorsement – for the third year in a row –
reflects the value and quality of CES Asia, the region’s premier tech
show,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, CES, and corporate
business strategy, CTA. “We work hard to bring a curated group of
exhibitors to the show. USDOC’s partnership over the years has been
integral to that mission.”

“As we gear up for 2018, USDOC’s efforts to expand and promote the show
among U.S. exhibitors will be more valuable than ever.”

The Trade Fair Certification creates public-private partnerships to
increase U.S. exports and to expand U.S. participation in international
tradeshows. Benefits include the USDOC’s official endorsement,
promotional support, recruitment efforts and show-related services. It
also signals federal confidence in the market where U.S. firms will be
selling their products and services.
