Dear MWTC members and guests:
The Biennial “Port of New Orleans Tour” presented by the Memphis World Trade Club will be from September 9th through 11th (Fri-Sun) 2016.
This exciting and educational tour 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 will include 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 which have agreed to provide a wonderful New Orleans reception and dinner as they have in the past.
Participants will have free time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Historic French Quarter and the surrounding area after program hours.
The MWTC group will travel by way of Motor Coach (bus) from Memphis to New Orleans (on September 9th am) and stay in an up-scale Marriott Hotel near the heart of the French Quarter District. Returning to Memphis on September 11th noon. Total cost of Hotel and Transportation is approximately $195 per Person (based on double occupancy of hotel room) for the entire trip - estimated.
Please access the link below and complete your credit card payment or mail in a deposit payable to the: Memphis World Trade Club to the address below to hold your limited space seating. The deposit is $95. This deposit is used to reserve seating and offset the cost of the motor coach and events. The deposit payment is required whether the bus travel is utilized or not. Each party will be responsible for their hotel room charges upon check out. As usual the MWTC is holding a block of rooms for this program at the Marriott Hotel.
