Dear MWTC members and guests:

This exciting and educational trip is developed especially for Mid-America exporters, importers, freight forwarders, steamship lines, and other related international companies and their employees.  You do not have to be a member of the MWTC to participate.

THE ITINERARY Includes a tour of the Port of New Orleans container terminals and break-bulk facilities, viewing of steamship vessels in port, and a tour of the sea port commodity facilities. We also have gracious sponsors that have agreed to provide a wonderful New Orleans reception and dinner as they have in past years.

Participants will have free time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Historic French Quarter and the surrounding area after program hours.

TRAVELThe MWTC group will travel by way of Motor Coach (bus) from Memphis to New Orleans (on September 12th  am) and stay in an up-scale Marriott Hotel near the heart of the French Quarter District.  Leaving New Orleans September 14th at noon for a Memphis return.
