As a partnering organisation, you are offered a complete package of services to assist you in reaching your goals and making your partnering experience as smooth and as effective as possible. The Trade and Development Symposium (TDS) model offers organisations the opportunity to take the lead in designing individual sessions. As a partnering organisation, you will have oversight of the topics, speakers, and format of a session, which will then be integrated into the Symposium programme. Partners will enjoy unparalleled outreach opportunities, including ambitious social media integration, opportunities for video webcasting, and excellent opportunities for meaningfully engaging with the trade and sustainable development community.
Why become a partner?
The biennial Trade and Development Symposium acts as a platform for meaningful engagement by more than 1,000 key stakeholders engaged in the trade and sustainable development process. This multi-stakeholder platform – outside the WTO Ministerial negotiation setting – reaches beyond the traditional trade community by also engaging policymakers at large, the private sector, NGOs, IGOs, think tanks, academia, and civil society
TDS organisers will guide you through every step of planning your session.
