About the WTCA

The World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) is an international trade association and a vibrant membership community that provides exponential reach for its members to find the right trade and investment opportunities on a global scale. As a beehive of economic activity, the WTCA provides the iconic World Trade Center brand, as well as an environment of trust and credibility. With more than 300 World Trade Center businesses in cities across nearly 100 countries, the association is an effective global network compromised of an ecosystem of economic development agencies, real estate developers, universities, logistical hubs, airports, free trade zones and more. The WTCA creates an environment where collaboration is encouraged between World Trade Center businesses to help educate and increase global trade and investment opportunities, and offers its members the tools to share best practices in areas such as agriculture, conferences and exhibitions, real estate, business clubs and trade services. Key trade services include trade missions, training programs, trade facilitation and much more. 

The WTCA is partners with industry organizations such as UFI, the global association of the exhibition industry, and the Global Trade Helpdesk, developed jointly by the World Trade Organization (WTO), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and International Trade Centre (ITC); and is an active participant in the United Nations Global Compact (UN Global Compact), which for 20 years has been uniting businesses for a better world driving change across all aspects of corporate sustainability.
