World Trade Day 2020

Tue May 12 @ 7:30 am - 6:30 pm



Welcome to the 4th annual World Trade Day page!

What an intense year it has been. International trade has become the talk of the town. Canada and Manitoba were founded on trading networks that have existed for hundreds of years. Our region has evolved from its origins in fur trading to exporting wheat, pork, canola, aircraft parts to countries such as the United States, Mexico, Korea and Germany.

On May 12, we will be celebrating 150 years since Manitoba officially entered confederation. What better way to spend the day than by attending World Trade Day to gather relevant information on specific topics that will help you work on your business more effectively.

The World Trade Centre Winnipeg and Export Development Canada present this year’s format which will consist of a full-day conference to bring you pertinent trade-related knowledge and tools to help you when facing importing and exporting challenges. Take the opportunity to meet other business leaders like yourself to share experiences and ideas on how to best tackle common challenges. Visit our Exhibitors Hall to network and meet potential partners or clients.
