About Our Events
Major Networking Events
The primary goal of World Trade Center Denver networking events is to provide an opportunity for local and international business people to meet others involved in the global marketplace, create relationships with new customers, and develop potential partnerships. The events range from informal networking events to our annual member meeting and our annual World Trade Day. We invite members and non-members alike to attend these events and keep abreast of international opportunities from around the world.

World Trade Day
World Trade Day is the premier international business event in the Rocky Mountain region. The World Trade Day conference has been held annually for 30 years, bringing together members of the international business community to focus on timely topics and/or particular global regions. The program combines a series of speakers from the local business community with key national and international leaders that come together to share their global insights.

The World Trade Center Denver's Annual Membership Meeting and luncheon provides members and their guests with an opportunity to share ideas with our board of directors and other members while learning about important issues that affect international trade in our community and around the world. The Annual Meeting is held each September.
International Rodeo Day
In January 2001 the World Trade Center Denver began a partnership with the National Western Stock Show's International Agribusiness Committee to create one of the most popular international networking events in the region, International Business and Rodeo Day. The event, held in cooperation with the Consular Corps of Colorado, local bilateral chambers and other regional international organizations, mixes the business of international agriculture with a night of networking, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres - all capped with preferred seating at the National Western's award winning rodeo. The event brings together over 200 people from a broad cross section of the region who are interested in international business and support Colorado's efforts to build our image as a recognized global community.
Once each quarter, the French-American, German-American and Swedish-American Chambers of Commerce, the British-American Club and the World Trade Center Denver gather for an evening of international networking. Visit our events page for details as locations and dates vary.

The World Trade Center Denver has been organizing and hosting breakfast and lunchtime informational and networking roundtables since 1992. Roundtable topics vary from country updates provided by visiting commercial officers from American embassies and consulates overseas or economic and commercial consuls from foreign consulates responsible for developing business relationships between their country and the Rocky Mountain region, to current political and international trade and finance topics that can impact the future of trade and international business. Roundtables are both informational and networking forums that raise awareness of different international business opportunities while promoting professional networking for participants. Together with local and national partners, we develop quality programs that provide meaningful, insightful information to all participants. Individuals interested in attending roundtable events do not have to be members of the World Trade Center Denver. However, most events require a small registration fee.

Cultural differences create a diverse world around us, but it is filled with challenges and opportunities for international business professionals. These nuances can become a source of anxiety and even mean the difference between a successful and a failed business transaction.
