October 2022 Updates
(Registration closing TODAY. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept any walk-ins!)
My favorite part of World Trade Center Delaware is working with you. Your stories about expanding your businesses are truly inspiring. That is why, on November 3rd, we will return to the Gold Ballroom of the Hotel DuPont to honor the achievements of our companies, large and small, and the leaders from the government and not for profit sector who make a difference every day in the economy and lives of Delawareans and others around the world.

Delaware’s impact on the world is substantial. Beyond our reputation as the “Corporate Capital of the World”, our businesses, academic institutions and government agencies attract people from across the globe who want to establish their business in Delaware, purchase our products and services, and learn from outstanding educational institutions.

This is why you will meet delegations from countries ranging from the United Arab Republic in the Middle East, Botswana and Morocco in Africa, and Guyana in South America who are combining their missions to Delaware with the Gala. They are visiting each county to develop partnerships with a cross-section of our economy: aviation, agriculture, finance, allied health and medicine, and workforce development. It is our honor to host these delegations and the Cabinet Ministers and other officials and business leaders as they meet and develop relationships within our international community as they join us to honor you.

Welcome to Our New Member
Add a level of sophistication to your event or showing with Aras!

Trying to sell a home or host a large event? Maybe you just need furniture to live on for a few weeks of temporary housing. Whatever your furnishing needs, we have you covered! Aras provides furniture rentals for events, showings, and short-term housing.

The Aras Origin Story
The story began when Aras founder, Jean Milfort, was traveling abroad. While doing some shopping, Jean stepped into a furniture store and immediately felt at home. “I felt immediately that this was where I wanted to be.” That experience of instant at-home comfort was one he wanted to share, so Jean returned home and began to offer rental furnishings.

Our Process
Aras offers a unique experience, not just through the quality of our furniture, but because of the companies we partner with. Aras works closely with JSM Transport because we know they’ll deliver and set up everything with care, and we also partner with a variety of decorators to make sure all your event or showing needs are met.

Turn Export Opportunities into Sales: New Online Trade Finance Guide Makes it Easier than Ever

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) is dedicated to helping U.S. businesses reach success through exports. One of the ways they do this is through ITA’s free online resource, their Trade Finance Guide: A Quick Reference for U.S. Exporters.

What is the Trade Finance Guide?
The Trade Finance Guide covers the most commonly used trade finance techniques and U.S. government export finance programs written in plain, easy-to-understand language. The Guide is:
  • A “60-minute” self-learning tool for America’s new-to-export SMEs that wish to learn about their financing options and how to ensure getting paid from export sales.
  • A user-friendly counseling tool for international credit, banking, and trade finance professionals and export counselors for client assistance and business development.
  • A flexible educational tool for academic institutions teaching international business subjects.

Their guide uses a no-nonsense approach to make it easier for new-to-export SMEs to learn the basics of trade finance and to understand how to mitigate the risk of non-payment while winning new cross-border sales opportunities and assuring the delivery of goods and services to importers.
