International Denver

As our city (and state) continues to grow, we are becoming a bigger player on the international scene. With the upcoming development of the new World Trade Center facility, this transition will become even more visible. An exciting and vibrant international hub due to open in the RiNo Art District in 2020, The World Trade Center will be a headquarters for international trade and related activities.

Despite these exciting local developments, our national politics around trade and international relations have become more complicated. What is Denver’s standing in the international trade arena? How will the WTC move us forward? How does our airport factor in to future internationalization? What barriers do we face to becoming a truly international city?

Please join our panelists as they address these questions in an engaging discussion. Breakfast will be provided.
