Global Trade Symposium

Each fall, AIM hosts the Global Trade Symposium & Awards breakfast.  The event features a keynote speaker, a panel discussing current global business challenges, and award presentations.

The 2019 event was held on November 7, 2019  at the Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy.  Martha Sullivan, President and CEO of Sensata Technologies, was our keynote speaker.

"We felt the award held PR value for Blackinton in the eyes of our customers and industry peers. We could “use” the award. Earning the award validated our efforts as a company—so there was a degree of internal recognition and pride. Receiving the award in front of a large audience of peers was special and memorable. "
