I hate to do two blog posts in one week about the Washington Trade Conference on November 21 (after Monday’s Canadian Trade Minister announcement), but I couldn’t wait any longer to reveal the participants for our panel discussion on “Improving Washington’s Trade Climate: Visa Entry Reform, Financial Services Policy & Global Health and Development”!

When many of us think about trade, we think of industries like aerospace, IT, agriculture and retail. But, for Washington, our trade economy is so much more! So to help us expand our understanding of the diversity of trade industries in our state, we’re presenting this very exciting panel:

  • Ken Willman, Chief Legal Officer, Russell Investments
  • Tom Norwalk, President & CEO, Seattle’s Convention & Visitors Bureau
  • Monty Montoya, President & CEO, SightLife
  • Jeanne Dillner, CEO, Surgical Implant Generation Network

Where else can you hear about how trade impacts financial services, tourism and global health & development in one panel discussion? I’d venture to say: “nowhere else but the Washington Trade Conference”. So, REGISTER NOW!

The participants for our final panel will be revealed on Monday. In the meantime, you can find the agenda and additional details at https://wcit.org/events/. Looking forward to seeing you there!
