With a different theme every year, World Trade Day has become the Rocky Mountain Region’s most successful and exciting focal point in the international business community for the past 40 years. Attendees gather to learn and discuss the most interesting and pressing issues facing global business today. World Trade Day always coincides with World Trade Week, which was declared by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1935. In 2014, the conference will focus on the inherent risks in international business (political, economic, sovereign, etc.) with sessions on risk due diligence, risk management and best practices.
