The Grand Events Center
Please join us for the 93rd Annual World Trade Week & International Delegate Luncheon and Trade Fair. The World Trade Week concept was started in 1926 and first observed in 1927 in Southern California. World trade significantly contributes to the nation’s economy and has developed a vast new horizon for America’s businesses.
Initially, the purpose of World Trade Week was the promotion of the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Following World War II, the expanding economy and potential for international commerce growth created an opportunity for World Trade Week to expand its scope to include all facilities and organizations in the Southern California area involved in world trade.
