ABOUT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER
World Trade Center St. Louis' (WTC) operating license is granted by the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) in New York and established the WTC as a regional entity serving not only the St. Louis metropolitan region, but also the entire Missouri and Southern Illinois markets, excluding the Kansas City region. We are part of an extensive global association of over 300 World Trade Centers, with overall goals to enhance international trade, promote local economic development, and ultimately foster peace and stability through trade. Established in 1993, our mission is to develop a comprehensive international agenda for the region by bringing together the human expertise and the government resources for international business growth.
