Allentown, PA - ATAS International welcomed guests from several countries to the ATAS headquarters in Allentown, PA, on September 19, for the biennial International Melting Pot event. The guests, all of whom are ATAS product distributors, gathered for education sessions, plant tours, and information exchanges. ATAS continues to grow their export business and develop relationships with distributors throughout the world.
Joao DaCosta, Director of International Business Development for ATAS, stated, “We were pleased to receive our international distributors for this third biennial meeting. The four-day event was full of collaborative ideas and enthusiastic networking. Our guests shared their business experience with ATAS and each other, and all left with many new and renewed global relationships.” The event wrapped up with a trip to New York City, where guests were treated to a matinee showing of the musical, Aladdin, followed by dinner.
DaCosta, who is also a professor of international business and global supply chain at Baruch College of The City University of New York (CUNY) in New York City, sees the Greater Lehigh Valley area as a strategic location for the manufacturing industry and for continued growth in the exporting of products.
