Miami World Trade Month is celebrated by a committee of over 20 organizations in Greater Miami who work together to showcase the importance of international trade, logistics, services and port operations to the South Florida economy. The committee uses its collective expertise to increase two-way trade for the region and promotes Miami as the “Trade & Logistics Hub of the Americas.”
In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt officially proclaimed World Trade Week as the third week of May in national observance of the importance of international trade to the United States.
Florida World Trade Month
May 1–31, 2019
Under the leadership of the World Trade Center Miami, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise Florida, Inc. and the World Trade Week Committee, in 2019 the original week long observance grew to a month long celebration with over 20 events held throughout Florida.
Today, Miami World Trade Month brings together over 2,000 business executives during May to celebrate international trade. The Committee has developed a series of events designed to assist small and medium size companies to enter the international trade arena expand their business and identify new clients. The ultimate objective is to promote Miami and Florida as the “Trade & Logistics Hub of the Americas.”
