Don't miss the unique opportunity to meet other local international trade professionals and hear from thought leaders on the importance of engaging global markets. 

Join the World Trade Center - Kansas City on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at  Summit Tech Academy. This year’s theme will focus on global supply chain disruptions, lessons learned, and outlooks for the future.

  • Ike Nwabuonwu, Chairman & CEO, Alpha Energy and Electric, Inc
  • Jay Kim, CEO and Founder, DataLocker
  • Connie Zack, CSO, Sunlighten
In addition to the program, they will be hosting breakout sessions with World Trade Centers from other countries including Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Gibraltar, Philippines, and Mexico.
