World Trade Day Kentucky 2015
On Friday, October 9th, 2015 The World Trade Center Kentucky will host World Trade Day Kentucky, presented by UPS, to celebrate 26 years of promoting global partnerships. This year's event will be held in Louisville, Kentucky at the Kentucky International Convention Center.
Dave Tatman, Executive Director of the Kentucky Automotive Industry Association and Nora Roper, Assistant Plant manager of General Motor's Corvette Assembly Plant will be the keynote speakers at World Trade Day 2015. For their keynote, Tatman will shed some light on the remarkable impact which exports from Kentucky's automotive industry have had on the Commonwealth. Roper will then share a glimpse into how export considerations are incorporated into the crafting of the iconic, Kentucky built, American Sports Car in her keynote entitled:
"Corvette Sting-Ray - Built in Kentucky, Made for the World".
