The 34th annual Maine International Trade Day, northern New England’s biggest international business event, with approximately 300 attendees from Maine, New England, and eastern Canada, was held on May 15th. The theme this year - "the New North" - was inspired by last year's keynote presentation by Icelandic President Ólafur Grimsson, who opened our eyes to the new developments in Northern Europe and Arctic territories, and was designed to stimulate discussion and spark ideas for new business strategies and collaborations.

Thank you to all of our Trade Day 2014 sponsors, presenters, and attendees for making the event a great success!
