The Export Matchmaker Trade Fair & Conference is part of the president's National Export Initiative. Its organizers hope that when it convenes on September 20, 2010, it will be able to help small business owners in the Garden State learn about the how to export the products they manufacture.

Small businesses will be able to meet with export management companies, export trading companies, brokers and agents.
