Attend a WCIT Event

Every year, WCIT creates collaborative opportunities to advance our state’s competitiveness. Our events provide an opportunity to interface directly with elected officials, to learn key updates from trade policy experts, and to network with other Washington businesses.

Whether you’d prefer an intimate roundtable discussion with the Washington congressional delegation, face-to-face time with administration representatives, educational sessions about trade policy, large conferences, or networking receptions, we offer something for you.

Last year’s highlights include a summer luncheon featuring U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, an EX-IM Bank reception with Governor Jay Inslee and the Washington congressional delegation, a freight mobility luncheon for logistics industry leaders, and lunch and learns all across Washington state.

We hope you’ll join us in advancing Washington trade! Visit our events page to see our upcoming opportunities.
