So many aspects of international commerce have been significantly challenged by the COVID pandemic, but the resulting innovation and entrepreneurial spirit have been inspiring. Business leaders in our Kansas City metropolitan community have retooled, repurposed, and rerouted to find solutions that meet the changing demands of global markets and chart a stable course through uncertainty. The Kansas City International Steering Committee invites you to join us for a World Trade Day conversation on the attitudes, adjustments, and accomplishments that have made this silver lining possible. Two panels, one focused on international opportunities and experiences in Latin America and the other focused on success stories in the KC metro area, will give you tactics, lessons, and insights for what's yet to come.

Tickets are free to the public. Lunch is OPTIONAL and provided by Thelma's Kitchen, a nonprofit social venture of Reconciliation Services at 31st and Troost in Kansas City, MO.

 Every Box Lunch helps provide social & mental health services and reduce food insecurity for KC neighbors in need who are experiencing poverty and trauma. Upon registration, you will select to register without lunch, to order a box lunch and schedule your pick up date/time at 3101 Troost Ave. KCMO 64109, OR to donate a lunch to a neighbor in need at Thelma's Kitchen.
