Upstate International Seeks Participants


Michelin North America has begun planning for the second annual Upstate International, a series of community events to take place throughout March 2014. Michelin will once again partner with the International Center of the Upstate and Clemson University.

Upstate International brings together members of the community, business leaders and local organizations to recognize the international influences and diversity that thrive in this region. In the inaugural Upstate International, held in March 2013, more than 70 events were hosted at venues across the Upstate, offering experiences ranging from youth art shows and a choir from Cuba to sumo wrestling and a Belgian beer dinner.

“Upstate International 2013 showcased the wealth of diversity that has blossomed in this region as a result of more international companies and groups making their home here,” said Pete Selleck, chairman and president of Michelin North America in a release.  “Michelin is proud to return as presenting sponsor, and we look forward to even more unique celebrations this year.”
