WorldCity is a Miami-based media and event company focused on the role of globalization on local communities.
Founded in 1998, the company hosts more than 40 events in the Miami area for the multinational and internationally focused business community, oversees a proprietary Who’s Here database of more than 1,100 multinationals in the Greater Miami area, produces annual import-export TradeNumbers publications across the United States, and generates more than 4,000 import-export trade stories at www.ustradenumbers.com each month.
The 40 events are split among six series. The three panel discussions include Global Connections, held 10 times each year, as well as Trade Connections and Tech Connections, each held six times annually. Attendance ranges from 75 to 250 people at these events.
WorldCity also hosts three exclusive roundtable event series, each by invitation only: the CEO Club, for heads of multinational operations in the Greater Miami area, held nine times annually; and Marketing Connections and HR Connections, each held six times annually.
Stories about these events are available at our home page.
The Who’s Here database is rich in information on the 1,100-plus multinationals with South Florida offices, including the top executives, contact information, country of headquarters, local employees, employees overseen from the Miami area, revenue overseen from the Miami area, and more. They have headquarters in more than 50 nations around the world, oversee hundreds of thousands of employees and are responsible for more than $200 billion in annual sales.
