Planning Underway for Celebrate Trade Gala 2021


Dear Friends and Supporters of Celebrate Trade and the Oregon Consular Corps,

While we were forced to cancel Celebrate Trade 2020 because of the COVID-19 crisis, there is still great news to report! Next year’s Celebrate Trade Gala, scheduled for Tuesday, May 18, 2021, is well on its way to success! Thanks to our generous sponsors NIKE, Port of Portland, Hoffman Construction and SKANSKA — and with the gracious consent of our table sponsors and ticket holders — nearly 100 percent of our guests agreed to transfer their support to the Celebrate Trade Gala in 2021! This show of support indicates the importance that our community places on international trade and the Oregon Consular Corps Scholarship program! We thank you!

In addition, we want to share with you this video premier of this year’s Oregon Consular Corps recipients! These ten fantastic young men and women from Lewis & Clark College, Oregon State University, Portland State University, the University of Oregon and the University of Portland well represent the next generation and the values they believe in. We are very proud of these students and we greatly appreciate your support for the Oregon Consular Corps Scholarship program! Please enjoy this five-minute video:

We look forward to seeing you at Celebrate Trade on May18, 2021!

For interested parties, tickets for Celebrate Trade 2021 are still available here
