Angela and Clark B.Home Hosts, International Exchanges
“The opportunity to immerse ourselves in foreign cultures, connect with people on their terms, and find where we all have common ground is what sparks our passion for travel. Hosting a delegation allowed us to do just that, while providing a little hospitality in return for all the gracious host we have encountered around the world.”
Annie W.International Distribution Manager, Inductive Automation
“We grew from one partner to four in one year by working with World Trade Center Northern California. They provided consultation services and market analysis to help develop our international distribution program. I continue to enjoy working with WTCNC to empower our international business community.”
Gwen T.Home Host, International Exchanges
“Glenn and I enjoy these visits with people from other countries. It makes for a lively conversation, and we learn so many things from them. It feels as though we have traveled to a foreign place for a little while. Much better than going to the movies.”
Mark HanekeAir Service Development Marketing Manager, Sacramento International Airport (SMF)
Participating in NorCalWTC programs, such as the International Marketing Professionals program and the International Business Luncheon has enabled me, as a newcomer to Sacramento, to grow my circle of internationally-oriented, like-minded business colleagues, increase my networking and expand my outreach, on behalf of SMF airport, to local stakeholders. Being a member of NorCalWTC has been an invaluable tool for me to achieve my professional goals during the first year in my position with the airport.

I wanted to let you know I thought the Letter of Credit seminar was incredibly beneficial and how happy my team is that WTC reached out to us to attend. Not knowing what we might learn from the seminar we only sent one person, but would definitely send one or two more to a future seminar. The information was invaluable, and the setup, food, etc were all excellent. Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you at future events.
Diana ErwinCommunications + Marketing Director, Miyamoto International
The reason I love this [international business professionals] group is that I really feel like I know people with international expertise whom I can call up for advice when I have a marketing emergency.
Leandra WilsonDirector of Strategic Operations & HR, Harris & Bruno International
As a manufacturer of printing equipment that gets exported globally, the World Trade Center Northern California has been a great resource for us. We particularly enjoy the Exporter Roundtable luncheons. There is so much to learn in the world of exporting, especially when dealing with so many different countries, that we always learn something new. It’s been great to hear from expert guest speakers and network with others in the area. The connections are great and we all share experiences and learn from each other.

The work you and your associates have done to successfully bring a tour into our pilot plant has matured into an excellent relationship with some Chinese business associates. They are quite interested in our products and how they can repair damaged farmlands. Thank you once again for all your excellent work!
