USA Partnership Pavilion

 USA Partnership Pavilion is your export advantage at EXPONOR. Because it presents the highest concentration of U.S. equipment and services at the show, it's a magnet for buyers looking for American quality, innovation and partnership. The U.S. will be featured in pre-show and on-site activities that will surely attract more interest from buyers, opinion-leaders and influencers.
