“International trade is a dynamic, ever-changing landscape and World Trade Day brings together like-minded businesses to engage in discussions about key trends and provides opportunities to share best practices and learn from one another.”

Lindsay Besser Hank, Director of Global Services

“Attending and sponsoring World Trade Day in 2019 helped our office, Denver Economic Development & Opportunity, connect with the global business/academic/government community, share our message, gain valuable contacts during the networking activities and ted talks, and learn about current issues that impact international trade.  It’s a great event to make connections and for us as a sponsor, raise awareness of our office to a globally minded audience.”

Stephanie Garnica, Director Global Business Development
Denver Economic Development & Opportunity

“World Trade Day attracts first class speakers with topical subject matter and “in the trenches” experience. Every year we realize a 100% ROI on our participation of World Trade Day.”

“World Trade Day is an extremely useful event to meet and mingle with Denver’s international business community. Being a sponsor gives you a further opportunity to really have a presence in front of your peers and reach the right people. Highly recommended event for anyone doing or interested in international business.”

“World Trade Day was one of the best conferences I’ve had the opportunity to take part in. The connections that I made during the conference and after were second to none (and some even became clients!). Participating in World Trade Day gave me the opportunity to get to know other players in the international business community and learn more about the different opportunities involved in working on the world stage. I’m looking forward to being involved again this year!”
