The World Trade Center Savannah, part of the Savannah Economic Development Authority, is recruiting companies for matchmaking meetings.

The World Trade Center Savannah is offering firms throughout Georgia virtual networking opportunities with business, government and nonprofit leaders around the world through its membership in a network of 320-plus such centers globally.  

The World Trade Centers Association, the umbrella organization that grants the license to the Savannah center and the World Trade Center Atlanta, is holding its annual assembly virtually April 26-30. 

Without the ability to network in person at its annual conclave, the association is deploying an artificial-intelligence-powered business matchmaking system to create opportunities for attendees to meet other like-minded companies.  

While members will enjoy exclusive programming starting April 27, the matchmaking sessions are open to all, meaning that any company in Georgia can take advantage of a rare chance to network with potential partners around the world without a significant investment of time or capital. The matched meetings can take place anytime through May 14, but the deadline to register is Friday, April 30. Non-WTC members attending the event are asked to pay $50.  

“This year’s General Assembly is sure to give local people an opportunity to network with others around the world who they would not normally have the chance to access so easily,” said Scott Center, World Trade Center Savannah board president and a board member of the World Trade Centers Association. “There has never been a global business to business event attempted of this scale, and I’m excited to see what comes out of it.” 

The offering comes just a week before the World Trade Center Atlanta puts on its annual World Trade Day summit May 4 on “Positioning for the New Global Economy.”
