Trading Wise and its principals have a long and distinguished history of hosting international visitors. Dating back to the time before the formation of Trading Wise, Inc. the principals of the Company have been involved with international visitors to Central Florida, both individually and in delegations.
In1985, the Shipleys hosted the first government delegation from the Peoples’ Republic of China to visit Orlando. For four days, a delegation consisting of Chinese government and press personnel visited the Chinese Pavilion at EPCOT, Orlando City Hall, the International Airport and Rollins College. They also spent the Sunday morning of their visit at a lakefront home on the Winter Park Chain of Lakes.
The Shipleys operated a business called Leisure Planners which took convention visitors and more specifically their wives “off campus” from the Convention hotels to show them all of Central Florida and its charm. This involved planning the transportation, feeding international visitors based on cultural and dietary differences, setting up individual meetings, etc.
Since the inception of Trading Wise, Inc. the couple has entertained over fifty international visitors at their home. As a basic part of the Trading Wise business model, meetings are scheduled for international delegations with potential customers, vendors and business partners in the area, all a part of the core business of the Company.
Now, in coordination with Enterprise Florida, The Economic Development Commission of Central Florida and the U.S. Department of Commerce, Trading Wise is hosting formal international business delegations, handling all local arrangements as needed, including hotel accommodations, meal arrangements and business meetings pre-arranged with potential vendors, customers and business partners in Central Florida.
