We believe educating Louisiana businesses in specific areas of international trade is the best way to make global participation a priority in business planning. We create opportunities for businesses to talk directly with key global industry leaders and subject matter experts to learn from their experiences in an effort to make international trade relevant to more Louisiana businesses.

During this week, we champion and amplify the voice of the trade community through unique programming and recognition of trade champions who promote international commerce and economic development opportunities throughout Louisiana. The highlight of Trade Week is the Louisiana International Trade Jubilee — a black tie event celebrating global culture and commerce where trade enthusiasts gather to highlight accomplishments of the WTC and honor individuals and businesses making an impact on Louisiana’s trade economy.
The Weekly Trader
The Weekly Trader is the World Trade Center of New Orleans weekly newsletter, with prominent information about what is going on at the state, national, and international level. WTCNO Policy Committee Chairs author sections that explain legislation being proposed and implemented at the State Capitol and in Washington, D.C that could have an impact on Louisiana businesses.
