Discover new international opportunities for your company at the 17th Annual Global Business Conference: Thriving with Change – Adapting to Today’s International Business Landscape

The World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia and the Temple University Fox School of Business and its Center for International Business Education and Research proudly present the 17th Annual Global Business Conference.

Keynote addresses from Kimberly A. Reed, President and Chairman, Export-Import Bank of the United States, and Osagie Imasogie, Co-Founder and Senior Managing Partner, PIPV Capital.

For the past 17 years, the WTCGP has produced the Global Business Conference to provide an outlook on global market trends, updates on national trade policies and practical tools to help international businesses increase their global sales. Attendees from the international business community and organizations gather to hear from senior trade officials and corporate leaders who provide up-to-the-minute information and insights.

“Through CIBER and our international business programs, we provide opportunities to learn and to build a network,” says Ronald Anderson, dean of the Fox School and the School of Sport, Tourism and Hospitality Management. “The World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia is a great partner in that mission. The Global Business Conference will offer our students and faculty an opportunity to discuss the changes taking place in the global markets with industry decision-makers.”
Past speakers have included Ambassador Jon Huntsman, Jeffrey Marrazzo, CEO, Spark Therapeutics, Jennifer Morgan, CEO, SAP and many other notable international business leaders and dignitaries. Click here for video of the 2019 GBC.

Partnering with CIBER and the Fox School of Business on our Global Business Conference is exciting - we look forward to the participation of Temple University’s international thought leaders, students and alumni,” says Linda Conlin, President, WTCGP.
The full schedule of speakers and panelists will be announced in early 2020.
