2022 wtca General Assembly

General Assembly: 18-22/04/2022

The World Trade Centers Association General Assembly (GA) is the association's annual flagship event, bringing together representatives of member World Trade Centers (WTCs) and their business networks. In 2022, the WTCA GA focused on business opportunities in Africa with a 100% virtual event, including two half days of live programming and a week of B2B networking opportunities across all time zones, via a free matchmaking platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI).

This AI-assisted B2B networking offered companies an effective and efficient way to make business contacts! Participants were able to take advantage of virtual meetings with other participants and let the algorithm do the work for them to find suitable business contacts.

AI-powered matchmaking tools maximised the time spent making business contacts. And WTCA's global community of MSMEs, economic development agencies, real estate developers, universities, logistics centres, airports, free trade zones and more provided the exponential reach participants needed to find the right trade and investment opportunities in over 90 countries!
