#InterCLE 2018

September 8, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for the second annual #InterCLE! A grand welcoming for international students and young professionals in the region. Transforming Cleveland into a Welcoming Hub for International Newcomers. Last year, we had over five-hundred international students from colleges and universities in Northeast Ohio. It was a remarkable opportunity to network with community leaders and other international students in the Cleveland area. This year we are expecting over one-thousand students to attend and we can’t wait to welcome them to our city!

If you would like to have your company or organization represented, we can offer you a table (FREE of charge) to share your mission, materials, job opportunities and to answer questions to those in attendance. If interested, please email Courtney Ottrix courtney@globalcleveland.org  with the name of the organization, contact person and cell phone number in order to confirm your organization’s attendance. RSVP HERE!!!
