As part of the trade mission, the International Trade and Diplomacy Office publishes a Participant Journal. Copies of the Participant Journal are distributed in-country at trade mission meetings, events, receptions, dinners, etc. Each participant is required to submit a personal biography, personal studio portrait, company logo, and brief company description to be used in the Participant Journal. Spouses and guests, who are traveling on the trade mission, may choose to waive these requirements. If spouses and guests are traveling together representing different companies, then we request that separate applications be submitted for each company. Select the blue link below at the bottom to add materials for an additional participant.
You may download this copy of a past Participant Journal to gain a better understanding of the materials you are required to submit.
If you need assistance obtaining these items, we recommend contacting your marketing department and they will be able to help you find each of the items in the proper format and size. It is especially important to submit studio portraits that are at least 300 DPI resolution in JPG format. Likewise, company logos need to be submitted as EPS or Adobe Illustrator files. Images and logos saved from standard websites and Facebook are lower resolution and will not print with clarity.
