The 2019 Mid-America Trade Summit.

Each fall, the MU International Trade Center, along with trade assistance partners from across the region, hosts the Mid-America Trade Summit.

The Summit provides a unique opportunity to bring together top exporters, global trade leaders and trade assistance providers from across Mid-America. Outstanding exporters from across Mid-America are invited to share their export stories — highlighting “best practices” and lessons learned that have contributed to their export success.

The Summit's fast-paced, high-touch format provides exporters, trade assistance providers and educators with direct access to high-level networking and shared-learning opportunities designed to guide export expansion. This is a premier regional event for companies focused on advancing trade and driving business growth.

Based upon feedback from event participants supporting overall convenience and cost reduction, the 2023 Mid-America Trade Summit will proceed virtually.
