Manhattan has one. Santiago has one. Montevideo has one. And now Buenos Aires will have its own World Trade Center to be located in Dock One of Puerto Madero. The announcement was made this week between the World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) and the developer of the recently completed Madero Harbour which the WTC Buenos Aires will call home.
La Nacion’s Alfredo Sainz says WTC-BA members will have access to market studies, international trade courses, business development seminars and exhibition spaces for showcasing member products and services. Annual membership in the WTC Buenos Aires will cost between US$220 and US$3,200 depending on the size of the organization.
While it will be the most high-profile, the new WTC in the US$300 million Madero Harbour won’t be the first World Trade Center in Buenos Aires. Sainz says the World Trade Center name was used in the 1990′s for a much smaller building on Avenida 9 de Julio. The new location will be the second WTC in Argentina after the Rosario location which was announced earlier this year. (Full Story in Spanish)
