As part of the Regional and Industry Focused Export Opportunities activity, Connecticut’s STEP goal is to facilitate international programs in key Connecticut industry drivers and encourage business-to-business connections.  To achieve STEP goal, the project has identified specific trade shows for state exporters at two international and two domestic trade shows. The outcome of participation at these trade shows is to increase the number of significant contacts made by state exporters, thereby leading to increases in the number of small businesses that export and increases in the value of exports for current exporters.
