World Trade Day 2013
LAST DAY TO REGISTER FOR World Trade Day 2013 is FRIDAY, MAY 10th!
Want to learn how today’s latest technology innovations can improve your operations and bolster your bottom line? Join us at Infinity Park on Thursday, May 16th, for “Plug In to the Global Economy: How Technology Impacts Trade.”
The 40th annual World Trade Day features technology demonstrations from some of the world’s most innovative firms like Google, IBM, IHS Global, Microsoft, SAP, SDL, aWhere, and eCustoms. Participants will also have the opportunity to hear high-profile speakers -- like Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide's Chief Information Officer Yuri Aguiar and Visa's Global Head of Network Processing Judson Reed -- who work at the apex of international business and technology, as well as other Colorado-based thought leaders, like the professional hackers at One World Labs. International business experts from top global companies like Jeppesen, Arrow, MWH, and Hitachi will also be on hand to share how they're using new technology to better their sales and increase their profits.
Please see the World Trade Day 2013 AGENDA for an updated list of speakers, panels, and technology demonstrations.
And if our remarkable list of speakers doesn't entice you, you might be interested to meet Basil, the Vigilant robot who will be serving up a more traditional kind of app(etizer), or witness a live 3D printer in action at our daylong techXpo. Not to mention, the U.S. Small Business Administration and Visa have chosen World Trade Day 2013 as a venue to announce the “Exporter of the Year” award as well as the winners of the SBA-Visa Export Video Contest. The Colorado Governor's Awards for Excellence in Exporting will also be recognized.
This is the LAST WEEK to register for World Trade Day, so make sure you do so soon! Make sure you register BEFORE MAY 10th to take advantage of Colorado’s premier networking event for international business.
