“We are very proud to have UPS back as our Presenting Sponsor this year. As a leader in global logistics, UPS is a perfect match for this event,” said Linda DiMario, executive vice president, Greater Irvine Chamber. “UPS brings great credibility to this event and provides OC World Trade Week guests with vast insights and resources.”
