After September 11th 2001, the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) along with the United Nations decided to select a day to be celebrated around the world known as World Trade Centers Day.

"In honor of World Trade Centers Day, the WTCGP gathers together the local business community to recognize the impact of world trade and to salute outstanding companies and individuals for their impact on the region," says WTCGP President Linda Conlin. "While every year is special, we are particularly excited about honoring this year's award recipients in our 20th anniversary year".

The award winners for this year are as follows - Daniel J. Hilferty, Chairman, Philadelphia Soccer 2026 and Chairman & CEO, Dune View Strategies; Liz Murphy, Senior Vice President, Governmental, Regulatory & External Affairs, PECO; and Harold Beck & Sons, Inc, - who will be honored September 29 at the event. Proceeds from the 20th Annual World Trade Centers Day Awards Celebration will support WTCGP's new and innovative program - Selling to the World: Growing a Vibrant, Inclusive, and Connected Economy for Greater Philadelphia.

"This initiative seeks to provide small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), including minority and women-owned businesses (MWBEs), with export assistance to reach new customers and partners worldwide". You can become a sponsor to support the World Trade Centers Day Awards Celebration and "your support will help communities restore and sustain economic growth and become more resilient, which will grow the region's manufacturing base, add well-paying, family-sustaining jobs, and expand the participation of underserved communities in global trade".
