About WTC Harrisburg

The World Trade Center Harrisburg was started 25 years ago by area business leaders involved in global trade who wanted to create a forum for information and resource sharing and to educate other businesses about global opportunities by a network called SPIN, or Southcentral Pennsylvania International Network. Five years later in 1997 as a result of a strategic planning process and with support from community leaders, the organization had grown from a local volunteer organization to have a regional, eight county focus. In 2002, the organization invested in the initial down-payment for a World Trade Center license and changed its name to World Trade Center Harrisburg.
