Event Description:
Go Global KC is the World Trade Center - Kansas City's premier annual event promoting Kansas City's vibrant international trade economy. Happening on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at  Summit Tech Academy, this year’s theme will focus on global supply chain disruptions, lessons learned, and outlooks for the future. Supply chains have taken a proverbial beating over the past year due to the pandemic, shifting consumer behaviors, the Suez Canal blockage, and more. You'll hear from our keynote, Don Graves, U.S. Department of Commerce Deputy Secretary, on this important topic, along with our moderated panel of local small businesses featuring:
  • Ike Nwabuonwu, Chairman & CEO, Alpha Energy and Electric, Inc
  • Jay Kim, CEO and Founder, DataLocker
  • Connie Zack, Co-Owner, Sunlighten

In addition to the program, we will be hosting breakout sessions with World Trade Centers from other countries including Canada, Colombia, Gibraltar, Philippines, and Mexico.

Finally, you also won’t want to miss the announcement of the 2021 Economic Development Agency of the Year award and 2021 Service Provider of the Year award. Join us for this unique opportunity to meet other local international trade professionals and hear from thought leaders on the importance of engaging global markets.
