About this event

Let us help you navigate the customs, visa, and sales tax considerations for Canadian companies participating in trade shows in the U.S.

Attending international trade shows is an ideal way to meet new customers, but it’s important to be prepared, as your cross-border travel does come with regulatory implications such as:

  • Customs requirements: For trade show booths, samples, and supplies crossing the border
  • Personnel considerations: Visas and permitted activities
  • Sales tax nexus considerations: Potential obligations arising from trade show participation or other in-state activity such as business sales or storing inventory

EDC’s International Business Advisory team will spend an hour with you to walk you through these considerations, so that you’re compliance-ready and well-prepared to attend your upcoming U.S. trade show with confidence.

 After the presentation, there’ll be a Q&A session where you can ask questions directly to our International Business Advisors.

We look forward to seeing you there!
