Elizabeth Ferguson represented the World Trade Center Atlanta in a recent visit to connect and build business relationships with the World Trade Center Marseille-Provence July 26. The meeting involved a full tour of the World Trade Center facility, discussion of the partnerships with the Congress Center and Chamber of Commerce in Marseille.
In addition to hosting WTC Association meeting in the spring of 2013 at the WTC Marseille-Provence, Marseille has been chosen as the 2013 Cultural Capital of Europe. The office offers a conference center with translation services and adjoining hotel, technology exhibition hall, Business Language Training center, and WTC Small Business training service. The WTC Apex Club staff represent 140 small business members providing them training for entrance into the global marketplace through coaching, financing and networking. As one of the main European ports, Marseille maintains very high trade activity levels.
“I was very impressed by the hospitality of the staff and breadth of the services the World Trade Center Marseille has to offer. We work very closely with the French business associations in Atlanta, and look forward to building our relationship further to bring beneficial opportunities through the trade activities and emerging small businesses involved with the WTC offices in Marseille.” Ms. Ferguson of Buckhead, GA said of her representation of the WTC Atlanta in the Marseille meetings. According to Ms. Ferguson, the WTC Atlanta will be scheduling videoconferences with the WTC Apex Club of Marseille during the year to identify business industries and opportunities for the Atlanta business community.
