World Trade Day

With a different theme every year, World Trade Day has become the Rocky Mountain Region’s most successful and exciting focal point for the international business community. Attendees gather to learn and discuss the most interesting and pressing issues facing global business today. World Trade Day often coincides with World Trade Week, which was declared by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1935.

Beginning in the 1970s, World Trade Day has been the premier, award-winning international business conference in the Rocky Mountain Region. For decades, each conference has worked to address modern issues in global business and international trade. A variety of groups have hosted this conference over the years including the Rocky Mountain District Export Council, the Department of Commerce, and the World Trade Center Denver.
