We are excited to be offering our first virtual World Trade Day on May 26, 2021! While we will miss getting together in person, we are looking forward to “seeing” you and still being able to engage in an energized day full of learning, sharing, and networking. There is much to talk about in terms of global trade and no shortage of topics we can address, which is why our topic for this year’s event is “The Future of Global Trade: Changes, Challenges and Opportunities.”

We are finalizing a thought-provoking and inspiring day with keynote speakers from around the globe who will discuss topics ranging from China trade relations to the future of in-person trade events! Our goal is not just to focus on presentations, but to also provide personal connections – something we have all been missing over the past year. World Trade Day will take place on a virtual platform managed by Accelevents, which will offer exciting opportunities for networking, including themed group discussions, small group workshops and networking “speed-dating.”

Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 26, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing additional information on the agenda and our speakers. Please follow us on social media and on our website and be sure to register!
