Greater Houston Partnership Celebrates Area’s Global Influence

It was billed as the Greatest Show in Houston. Once again, the annual World Trade Soiree, hosted by the Greater Houston Partnership, did not disappoint.

This year’s theme –  Cirque du Houston – showcased a variety of cultures and countries that are key to the area’s economic success.  It featured a dazzling display of  entertainment, including dancers swaying to Brazilian and African music along with an appetizing menu of ethnic foods and wines.

Faces in the crowd included: GHP President and CEO Jeff Moseley; Geert C. Visser, Consulate of the Netherlands; Micah Hirschfield, GHP VP of Communications; Houston City Council Member Brenda Stardig; Bellaire Councilman Corbett Parker; HISD Board President Paula Harris and HISD board member Harvin Moore, HCC President Dr. Mary Sprangler, Don IIoff from Lakewood Church and Political Consultant Chris Begala, along with many others.

According to the GHP, the soiree is an amazing night ight that showcases the Houston region as an epicenter of international business and influence. Drawing more than 600 of the area’s global commerce, government and economic development leaders, this salute to international trade also hosts our Consular Corps.
