August is Member Appreciation Month at MITC. This event is one simple way to bring Maine’s international business community together and say “Thank You” for your support.

Our experienced panel will discuss “The Future of Global Trade” and share their insights on the short- and long-term outlook for major markets (Canada, Europe, and Asia) and various industry sectors, as well as things to do now to position your business for a strong recovery in 2021.


  • Wade Merritt, Maine International Trade Center President and State Director of International Trade
  • Mark O’Connell, CEO, OCO Global
  • Adam Kennedy, VP Kepware Global Sales, PTC

Following the premiere of the Members Supporting Members video, you will hear from Dignitary Sponsor Bill Williamson, State President – Maine, from Bank of America.

We’ll also share a heartwarming story highlighting one MITC member that shows the power of personal relationships underlying business transactions during a global pandemic.

We hope to see you there!

A Sweet Treat for You

We’ve partnered with Wilbur’s of Maine to offer the Summer’s big seller – Shah Bars – as our Thank You gift. That’s a sweet treat for you, and 10% of sales are donated to a local food pantry. When you register for the event, choose either dark or milk chocolate and provide a mailing address, and we’ll send a delicious chocolate bar right to your door. (For registrations received through August 13th, bars will be mailed before the event. For registrations received after August 13th, bars will be mailed after the event.)
