About the event

Through the years, the City of Houston has been at the forefront of human achievement. The first domed stadium, the first word heard from the moon, the first artificial heart transplant—all were achieved from that spirit of endless possibilities.

Houston offers business opportunities and ties with a myriad of cities around the world, driving the progress of the city. If you are interested in learning more about Houston’s Trade & International Affairs Office and networking with other like-minded people this is your opportunity!
