The North American Logistics & Manufacturing Symposium

Message from our President & CEO:
Welcome to Pathways for Trade, the North American Logistics and Manufacturing Symposium. The Laredo Economic Development Corporation is pleased to invite you to participate in our international event that will be virtual this year for its 28th year anniversary. Our theme this year is Supplying the Nation’s Economy – Top Ports in the U.S. I am sure you will find the event highly relevant and extremely interesting as we will gain valuable insight from the Top U.S. Port representatives that make up a combined 25% of our nation’s trade with the world. The Keynote Address from Congressman Henry Cuellar will focus on the resurgence of the U.S. Economy.
This annual collaboration of international stakeholders offers a platform that brings trending industry information to industry leaders and political figures. Last year, more than 200 attendees from the U.S., Mexico and Canada participated, and this year we anticipate another highly successful Symposium. Thank you for your interest and we hope you consider registering and attending our signature event.
