World Trade Center Savannah announced that it was awarded the Premier Accreditation by the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) – a global network of more than 300 highly-connected, mutually supportive businesses and organizations across nearly 100 countries. This achievement demonstrates that World Trade Center Savannah meets the WTCA’s highest quality standards and provides exceptional services, embodying the very best of the WTCA. World Trade Center Savannah is only the second world trade center in North America to achieve this accreditation.
“On behalf of the WTCA, I wish to congratulate World Trade Center Savannah on this great achievement,” stated WTCA Board of Directors Chair John E. Drew. “We crafted this accreditation program to recognize our member World Trade Centers who meet the WTCA standard for exceptional facilities and services that significantly enrich their local communities. The requirements for this program are quite rigorous and we could not be more proud of our members who demonstrate this level of excellence.”
Established in 2021, the WTCA Accreditation is the official process that provides formal validation of a World Trade Center location’s commitment to excellence in facilities and services. The program has two accreditation levels – Accredited Member and Premier Accredited Member, for those who provide the highest levels of facilities and services. World Trade Center Savannah received the Premier Accredited Member status.
“When World Trade Center Savannah originally received its license 10 years ago, the team was very quick to earn their certification through WTCA because it signified that the Savannah office is a legitimate and premier organization,” said WTCA board member and WTCSav Board President Scott Center. “When WTCA announced the accreditation process, World Trade Center Savannah took the necessary steps to become accredited immediately. The strength of WTCA lies in the efforts of each individual World Trade Center, and this process ensures that every organization is operating at an exceptional standard and also allows world trade centers to tell their partners across the globe what services they offer.”
A member World Trade Center can get extra recognition for areas it specializes in, which may be any or all of the following categories:
- Trade development
- Commercial real estate and services
- Business and member services
- Conference and exhibition services
