I’ve talked many times in this blog about how Houston is an international city and how the future of business is being a player in the global community. Here’s the perfect opportunity for you and your business to reach out to the international community in Houston, the Greater Houston Partnership’s World Trade Soiree is quickly approaching. This year it will be held on September 20th at Hotel Zaza. Below is information provided by Kristin Smith, the main contact at the GHP.

The annual Soirée showcases the Houston region’s star power as an international business center. The region’s global business leaders, government representatives, economic development allies, and our valued Consular Corps take part in this world-class tribute to international business and the world marketplace. This year’s event, themed Fly Away With Me, will include ethnically diverse dinner stations, dancing, a silent auction, and entertainment highlighting the cultures of our regional trade partners. It’s an evening you will not want to miss!

There are still sponsorship opportunities available as well as tables and individual tickets. Contact Kristin at or 713-844-3694, if you have questions or are interested in attending. For business owners thinking about the future is thinking globally and this will be the premier international event in Houston this year.
