Our Events

Learn from and connect with global leaders

Throughout the year, the World Trade Center Institute (WTCI) hosts a variety of events – from thought-provoking two-hour discussions with global executives to energizing daylong conferences with future leaders. Speakers have included Honest Tea founder Seth Goldman, Stanley Black & Decker President of Hand Tools, Accessories, and Storage Tabata Gomez and Olympian Dominique Dawes. Thousands of attendees have walked away with ideas and connections to drive growth and global good.


Four times a year, at the grand and historic Parkway Theater in Baltimore, MD, executives come together to hear from experts on the front lines about breakthrough innovations that address some of the most pressing issues facing global business.
