We can design a program for you
We partner with private companies, government offices, and non-profit organizations to create custom professional international exchange opportunities that bring individuals from different parts of the world together to examine global challenges. We can arrange all programmatic and logistical aspects of international meetings, conferences, dialogues, training programs, fellowships, and other public and private events.
How it works
We work one-on-one with each client to determine their needs and develop a customized plan for the administrative and programmatic management of their event or program. We aim to support San Diego’s global competitiveness efforts by connecting global business leaders with their San Diego counterparts, fostering relationships and forging international business connections. Our fees are based on the level of service provided, number of international guests, and length of program.
