A Centennial Celebration is literally a once-in-a-lifetime event. At NFTC, we are not content merely to celebrate our rich history. In the spirit of the first National Foreign Trade Convention, we want to seize this unique moment to examine critically the landscape of world trade, to analyze the mega-trends in force, and to envision what the future of international trade will hold for American companies, industries, and country as a whole.

Because he was instrumental in our establishment, the NFTC Centennial Kickoff Reception will be held at the historic President Woodrow Wilson House, just north of DuPont Circle in the lovely Kalorama neighborhood. This unique Georgia Revival town home served as the post-presidency residence of President Wilson and his wife, Edith. Today it is preserved as an elegant living memorial to President Wilson by the non-profit Woodrow Wilson House, and features 1920’s-era décor, furniture, books, and artwork, as well as artifacts ranging from state gifts to personal effects of the 28th President and his family.

The evening will culminate with the grand unveiling of "The NFTC Story", a 3-dimensional commemorative artwork created by local artist Lawrence Romorini. The work was specially commissioned to reflect the first 100 years of the NFTC and our critical role in the emergence of the U.S. as the world’s global economic leader.
