BOULDER, CO – Boulder will be in the world spotlight July 23-27 when Friendship Force International brings about 400 international visitors to attend its 2019 World Conference, offering numerous opportunities for Boulder Chamber members to develop international business ties and attract customers to their businesses.
 “We are really excited about the mutually-beneficial opportunities during our World Conference when Boulder businesses can benefit from attracting visiting customers and we can share the mission and vision of FFI for a more peaceful world,” said Jeremi Snook, President and CEO of Friendship Force International
FFI will soon be announcing opportunities for Boulder Chamber members to sponsor various events, activities and materials in order to generate positive visibility and potential sales among the more than 400 international visitors.
Announcements of potential sponsorships will be made in coming weeks on the Boulder Chamber website. To facilitate community and business interaction, Friendship Force International has joined the Boulder Chamber.
Boulder Mayor Suzanne Jones will be delivering welcoming remarks during the World Conference Opening Ceremonies July 23. 
Friendship Force International, the pioneer in international citizen homestay programs designed to build bridges of understanding across borders and cultures, has helped more than one million people stay in each other’s homes worldwide – often developing lifelong friendships – since its founding in 1977.
Friendship Force’s last biennial World Conference was held in Manchester, England in 2017. Boulder was chosen for the 2019 World Conference for its culture of openness, diversity, tolerance, progressive thought and harmony, along with the Boulder region’s environment, climate, robust economy, accessibility and business vitality.
