consular association reception

The Consular Association Reception (CAR) is an annual event the World Affairs Council of Tacoma hosts in honor of members of the Washington Consular Association, individuals who serve their home country's interests and further global development across Washington.

Hosted since 1988, the event celebrates the relationships that position Washington as a leading state in economic, trade and cultural exchange. The CAR honors the ties that bind us and the individuals dedicated to this work.

Unfortunately, due to concerns for our guests' safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no 2020 Consular Association Reception. All of us at World Affairs Council Tacoma hopes you remain healthy and safe until we are able to meet again for our next Consular Association event in 2021.

Below is some information regarding our 2019 event. You can also see information about our 2018 event here.

Position your brand in front of the state's consuls, business leaders, and regional government officials, as well an engaged group of global travelers. Consider becoming a Consular Association Reception sponsor for one of our future receptions. Learn more about the benefits of sponsorship - and register as a sponsor - here.

We held our 30th annual CAR at the Tacoma Art Museum and our keynote speaker was Lance Lyttle, Managing Director of SeaTac Airport. You can view more photos from this event here.

Special thanks to our sponsors!
