The World Trade Association of Philadelphia hasbeen connecting the Philadelphia region and the world since 1931. Trade is essential to our region and nation, and the WTA facilitates trade through our educational, networking and charitable events.


Recent events have included discussions on regulatory matters, shippers’ panels, steamship line nights, logistics issues and other topics. Guest speakers include industry leaders and public officials with the cutting edge knowledge that supply chain professionals need in order to compete.  As our organization’s constitution puts it, “The purpose of this Association shall be to promote and extend international trade, to

Ben Franklin

provide a medium for the interchange of
ideas among those engaged in international business of the United States of America
and those of other countries, and in their efforts to build for greater international
trade. This Association does not
contemplate pecuniary gain or profit, incidental or otherwise, to its members."


Personal connections are essential to
international trade and transportation. The WTA initiates and enhances personal connections, while educating its members in order to create
the trust and knowledge for trade to thrive.

We invite you to join the WTA today and become part of our vibrant community
