The World Trade Center Institute (WTCI), the state of Maryland and Legg Mason will be hosting Embassy Night: 25 Years of Connecting Business to the Diplomatic Community on October 4 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.
Twenty-five years ago, a unique event concept was unveiled: A platform that offered the rare chance to simultaneously connect with multiple embassies, trade investment groups and area business leaders – all on one day, in one place, at one time. This concept became a reality and Embassy Night (formerly Embassy Day) was born. Since then, Embassy Night has become one of the largest gatherings of foreign diplomats and business leaders in the country.
Embassy Night will kick off with two break-out sessions on “The Global Cyber Threat: How to protect your infrastructure through cyber readiness” hosted by Telecommunications Systems and “Navigating Uncharted Waters: Managing Payment and Foreign Exchange Risk in the Global Marketplace” hosted by Miles & Stockbridge and Wells Fargo.
The evening will continue with two international receptions, a VIP Ambassadors’ dinner and a “Top Growing Global Markets” presentation that honors the region’s key international business results and markets in 2013. Attendees will get the inside scoop and build on the successful learning of such notable organizations as University of Maryland University College, ARINC, Miles & Stockbridge, Jhpiego (a Johns Hopkins Affiliate), RTI International, Wells Fargo, Areas, Lupin Pharmaceuticals and BD Diagnostics along with senior international diplomats representing 25-plus countries including Brazil, Canada, South Africa, Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, Peru, Argentina, Ireland, Switzerland, Egypt and more!
Event proceeds benefit WTCI’s Professional Exchanges Program – a program described by Ambassadors as one of the most effective foreign policy tools of American diplomacy. It is strongly suggested guests reserve their seats early as this is a sell-out dinner.
