2010 Globe Awards Dinner & Auction
Reserve your spot for this evening event celebrating international business achievements, including the presentation of the Chamber’s 22nd annual George Francis Train International Business Award.
About the G.F. Train International Business Award:
The award commemorates George Francis Train, a legendary Boston Yankee who had a special place in his heart for Tacoma. Train was the most prominent promoter in the groundbreaking for the transcontinental railroad in Omaha and claimed credit for the selection of Tacoma as the western terminus of the Northern Pacific Railroad and coining the appellation “City of Destiny.”
The award was developed in recognition of the tremendous importance that international business means for our region and for its significant economic and cultural contribution to our community.
Also at the event will be presentations of the following World Trade Center Tacoma Awards:
The Globe Award recognizes a Washington State based business that has demonstrated success and industry leadership through its extension to global business, its product/service innovation, its contribution to the state’s economic growth and its participation in community development.
The Marco Polo Award recognizes a small to medium size business that has demonstrated first time success and accomplishment in international trade.
