Upcoming Visitors

Each year, the Northern California World Trade Center and Global Ties San Francisco host more than 1,000 international visitors through international exchanges. Many of these visitors are leaders and emerging leaders invited to the United States at the auspices of the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program.

Due to COVID-19, and the necessary precautions to stop the spread of the virus, the U.S. State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs has put a temporary pause on international exchange programs through July 31, 2020. The World Trade Center Northern California looks forward to resuming exchanges when it is safe for our communities and international visitors.
