Davidson Conference Center at USC
September 20 to September 22, 2006

From the Opening Reception at City Hall to the Closing Party at Paramount Studios, the first Sister Cities Trade Conference held at the University of Southern California and sponsored by FedEx turned out to be a great success. The Conference was organized to promote trade investment opportunities and exchanges between Los Angeles and her twenty two sister cities around the world. During the three days of exciting topics and panels ranging from the Future of Entertainment and Technology as well as Global Marketing and Tourism, people from our sister cities got together to learn and exchange
