Miami World Trade Week is a committee of over 20 organizations in Greater Miami who work together to showcase the importance of international trade, logistics, services and port operations to the South Florida economy. The committee uses its collective expertise to increase two-way trade for the region and promotes Miami as the “Trade & Logistics Hub of the Americas”.
World Trade Week History
In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt officially proclaimed World Trade Week as the third week of May in national observance of the importance of international trade to the United States.

Under the leadership of the World Trade Center Miami, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise Florida, Inc. and the World Trade Week Committee, the original week long observance has grown to a month long celebration with over 20 events held throughout Florida. Florida World Trade Month brings together over 2,000 Florida business executives during May to celebrate international trade.
In Miami, the Committee developed a series of events designed to assist small and medium size companies to enter the international trade arena expand their business and identify new clients. The ultimate objective is to promote Miami and Florida as the “Trade & Logistics Hub of the Americas”.
