What You Get:

Commercial Specialists from four markets (France, Germany, Italy and Turkey) will promote each Ohio firm to potential buyers or business partners in their respective markets. Each firm will receive our customized Gold Key service. This consists of pre-arranged appointments with up to five qualified buyers and/or business partners for each of the exhibiting firms. The appointments will take place either at FirstEnergy’s booth or another location during the K show.

On-Site Assistance:

A bi-lingual student intern will staff FirstEnergy’s booth during the first four days of the show. This intern will primarily be available to organize the pre-arranged Gold Key meetings. In addition, a Commercial Specialist and/or Commercial Officer from the Dusseldorf office will accompany representatives from the Ohio firms to their business meetings, if requested.
