ATD International Becomes ATD Global

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

We are excited to announce the name change of the ATD International division to ATD Global. As ATD marks our 75th anniversary, our global community is more vibrant and diverse than ever. ATD is proud to serve members from more than 120 countries. At our recent annual International Conference & EXPO, we welcomed more than 13,000 attendees from more than 90 countries!

ATD Global Village
ATD’s publications have been translated into 11 languages. In recent years we have brought our world-class content to other parts of the world. In 2017 we organized international events in Asia Pacific, China, Japan, Korea, Europe, Latin America, India, and the Middle East. We are also working with partners to deliver ATD education programs in China and the Middle East.

Started as a two-person team under Membership more than 15 years ago, ATD International developed into a team with a global background working with more than 15 partners from 10 countries, as well as team members based in our international offices in Beijing and Shanghai. Our new name, ATD Global, reflects our broadening portfolio and our commitment to the global community. Our new name will inspire and inform our actions for a global audience with language that is inclusive and current.

Global Strategic Partners
Thank you all for working with us to create a world that works better.
