International Business Conferences and Seminars
Partnering with more than 40 organizations located in the metropolitan region dedicated to promoting international trade, the Center hosts the annual World Trade Week NYC Awards Breakfast and Resource Forum. Partner organizations included federal, state and local government agencies, trade associations, chambers of commerce and foreign consulates. The Awards Breakfast, which is the main event during a month of educational seminars and networking events, honors New York companies that are doing business internationally and organizations that are helping New York companies grow through trade.
In addition to its participation in World Trade Week, the Weissman Center works with a number of organizations in the metropolitan region to host international business conferences and seminars. For example, the Center partners with the Journal of Commerce and New York Maritime, Inc. to host an annual breakfast seminar, the Global Market Breakfast, that focuses on New York as a hub for global business.
