World Trade Center Savannah (WTCSav) will host its third annual Prosperity Through Trade Luncheon Tuesday, May 3, 11:30 a.m. at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa, 1 Resort Dr. Internationally respected demographer and bestselling author Ken Gronbach will be the keynote speaker.

Gronbach predicts that the United States and the Americas, because of their superior demographics compared to any other continent, will excel culturally and economically in the post-COVID era and well into this century. Gronbach’s blend of marketing savvy and common-sense demography, based on more than 20 years of proprietary demographic study, has enabled him to forecast societal, commercial, economic, cultural and political phenomena with accuracy.

“We are excited to bring our annual Prosperity Through Trade Luncheon back to May, which is International Trade Month,” said BankSouth Savanah Market President and World Trade Center Savannah Board of Directors Chairwoman Laura Moore. “We had a tremendous turnout for our 2021 event, and we’re hoping to attract even more attendees to this year’s luncheon.”

World Trade Center Savannah will also present the World Trade Center Savannah International Business of the Year Award, sponsored by Georgia Southern University, to a regional company demonstrating excellence in international trade. This award is presented to encourage and recognize exemplary corporate leadership for international business or trade that advances relations between the U.S. and other nations as well as creates quality jobs in the region. The nomination is open to companies of all sizes located in Southeast Georgia engaging in international trade. Nominations should be submitted here by April 1.

This event will serve to highlight global economic development in the region and to showcase the activities of WTCSav and the successes of its 16 economic development authority partners in the Southeast Georgia region.
