Grow Globally Fair Phoenix: Wow!

Posted by: Global Chamber Phoenix on Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Today we held the Grow Globally Fair Phoenix, with all the global resources in Phoenix, all together, one time per year.

Pictured from left: Margie Emmermann (Molera Alvarez), Mike Patterson (Polsinelli) and Ana Salido (Consulate of Mexico).

Here's some response from the overflow crowd: "Wow!" "Amazing!" "What an extraordinary event to meet all the global resources, all in one place!" Thank you to the very cool globally-minded leaders who came out on a hot day in Phoenix. Global business is, dare we say, 'hot' as well?

Special thanks to our event sponsors Polsinelli and APL Logistics. Both are firms filled with extremely talented global professionals who are linchpins for global activities in Phoenix and well beyond. Thank you for your support of companies in our community, and to the Global Chamber!
