Each year, the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia presents the World Trade Centers’ Day Dinner and Awards to celebrate the global achievement of the Greater Philadelphia region and to recognize those international business leaders who have made a significant contribution to regional and national economic growth through international trade.

The 2012 Dinner is especially significant as WTC-GP celebrates its tenth year of providing international trade services and global connections to help Pennsylvania and New Jersey companies succeed in global markets.

This year's Honorees include:

  • The Honorable Thomas W. Corbett - Governor of Pennsylvania -- 2012 Global Business Leadership Award. Secretary C. Alan Walker of the Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development (DCED) will be accepting the award on the behalf of the Governor.
    • Governor Corbett is being recognized for his continuing support of the World Trade PA program which worked with 1,272 companies in fiscal year 2010-11, generating $526 million in export sales and attracting 20 new investment projects which generated $159 million in the Commonwealth. His recent trade mission to France and Germany demonstrates his commitment to growing the Commonwealth's economy through trade and expanding global opportunities for Pennsylvania's companies.
  • White and Williams LLP --- 2012 Member Company of the Year – Pennsylvania
  • SEA BOX, Inc. -- 2012 Member Company of the Year – New Jersey

The event is in keeping with a day created after September 11, 2001, by the World Trade Centers Association in cooperation with the United Nations, to be celebrated around the world as World Trade Centers’ Day. Over 320 World Trade Centers worldwide organize activities ranging from conferences to cultural events to foster their message of prosperity through international trade.
