Dear MWTC members and guests:
The Biennial “Port of New Orleans Tour” presented by the Memphis World Trade Club will be from September 21st through 23rd (Fri-Sun) 2018.
This exciting and educational tour is developed especially for Mid-America exporters, importers, freight forwarders, steamship lines, and other related international companies and their employees. You do not have to be a member of the MWTC to participate.
The itinerary will include a tour of the Port of New Orleans container terminals and break-bulk facilities, viewing of steamship vessels in port, and a tour of the sea port commodity facilities. We also have gracious sponsors which have agreed to provide a wonderful New Orleans reception and dinner as they have in the past.
Participants will have free time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Historic French Quarter and the surrounding area after program hours.
The MWTC group will travel by way of Motor Coach (bus) from Memphis to New Orleans on September 21st and stay in an up-scale Marriott Hotel near the heart of the French Quarter District. Returning to Memphis on September 23rd.
