  • The Association and World Trade Center Queretaro Co-Host Global Trade Conference

The World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) — a network of more than 300 highly-connected, mutually supportive businesses and organizations — will host its 50th annual General Assembly (GA), drawing upwards of 500 representatives from Member World Trade Centers, foreign trade delegations and local Mexico companies. This year's event in Queretaro, Mexico, from April 7-11, will also mark the beginning of a year-long commemoration of the organization's 50thanniversary.

"Now, more than ever, is an important time to collaborate in international trade," said Scott Ferguson, CEO of WTCA. "Thanks to our focus on driving trade and investment through global connectivity with each other, our Members are uniquely positioned to help local companies and investors grow in an environment that may not always seem friendly to international commerce. Over the next year we will recognize half a century of global trade connectivity for our association and its members, and we look forward to meeting in Queretaro to plan the next 50 years."

Chosen as the host of the 2019 GA, WTC Queretaro promises to execute an unparalleled event in the heart of Mexico. The program offers opportunities to make important connections in a wide range of industries both within the region, and throughout the entire WTCA ecosystem of trade.

"Queretaro's central location and proximity to other major cities such as Mexico City and Guadalajara make it a success destination for international trade," remarked Carlos Uribe Menendez, Chief Operating Officer of WTC Queretaro. "We're honored to host this year's GA, and excited for attendees to experience firsthand what makes Queretaro such a vibrant place to live, work and conduct business."

The GA will consist of a two-day "Innovation, Technology and Sustainability" (ITS) Summit, focused on key sectors in the region including healthcare research and development, agriculture and food, and aerospace manufacturing. Leading companies in each category — such as Mars, Nestle and General Electric — will present new findings, technologies and trends.

The remainder of the agenda promises a spectacular lineup, including speakers including Sherah Beckley, award-winning media and sustainability leadership expert from Thomson Reuters; Claire Casey, Founder and Managing Director of FP Analytics; Jesus Seade, Foreign Affairs Undersecretary for North America (Mexico); and Angela Marshall Hofmann, President and Founder of World Strategies, LLC.
