INDIANAPOLIS -- The World Trade Centers Association has approved the license that will allow city leaders to build a World Trade Center in the middle of the Circle City and put Indianapolis businesses on the international stage.
“Months of planning, preparation and hard work have turned a preliminary business plan into a fully-licensed entity focused on global opportunities for Indiana,” said Doris Anne Sadler, president of WTC Indianapolis. “We’ve traveled to foreign countries for trade and investment opportunities, hosted visiting trade delegations, created strategic partnerships and introduced the WTC brand to a number of constituencies. It has been a lot of hard work; that work continues as we help smaller businesses identify otherwise unknown opportunities overseas and navigate complex international transactions.”
By becoming a member of the World Trade Center Association, Indianapolis can now develop and operate a WTC. Services provided by the center will focus on three main categories:
facilities and services in real estate, trade and economic development, and conferences and exhibitions.
“The World Trade Center Indianapolis is a welcome addition to our city. Indianapolis has grown into a dynamic global business hub and today’s announcement is yet another example of that. Our workforce continues to evolve and access to a global trade network through the new World Trade Center will increase our ability to connect with international partners to grow our economy,” said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett.
