Badge from Internet Brokers meeting an Indian trade delegation visiting Chicago
Internet Brokers created e-mail trading posts in the early days of the opening of the Internet to business to use, in part, the relatively new technology of e-mail to make it easy to find international trade and business opportunities. Internet Brokers has been sending subscribers e-mail trading posts once or twice monthly since the period when less than one-half of one percent of the world's population was using the Internet and is based in Chicago. Internet Brokers has received permission to place an announcement on e-mail trading posts from companies ranging from a division of a multinational major corporation to a private company in business more than thirty years. Internationalbusiness contacts come partly fromtraveling outside of the U.S.A. as a guest of trade organizations in other countries to meet local companies, such as in Peru and inCosta Rica, meeting trade delegations visiting Chicago, andgiving a presentation at an U.S.-African trade conference.
