The Summit’s theme is “The Innovation Advantage” and will feature investment opportunities from every corner of the United States for global investors, while high-profile business and government leaders will share their insights on the latest innovation and trends.
Note that President Barack Obama will host the 2016 summit and deliver the keynote address on Monday, June 20!
“The President’s leadership underscores our Administration’s firm commitment to attracting new, job-creating investments to the United States. The SelectUSA Summit provides business leaders from around the world the opportunity to hear firsthand from President Obama and others why the United States is the world’s leading destination for foreign investment.”
“For three straight years, business leaders from around the world have ranked the United States as the number one place to invest,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. “The SelectUSA Investment Summit is an opportunity to underscore some of our country’s greatest strengths, including a vibrant culture of innovation, a skilled and productive workforce, and an attractive consumer market. This third annual convening promises to provide international firms and economic developers with tools that will lead to more investment in the United States.”
– Secretary Penny Pritzker, U.S. Department of Commerce
The 2016 Summit will build on the overwhelming success of the last SelectUSA Investment Summit which brought together thousands of participants from more than 70 international markets, including companies and business associations, as well as economic development organizations (EDOs) and other representatives from all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam. Global CEOs and other business leaders representing major international firms such as BMW, Carlyle Group, Google, Michelin, Nestlé, Nissan, Samsung, Sony, Unilever, and Walmart, joined entrepreneurs at the Summit who have successfully grown their startups and SMEs in the United States.
In addition to an agenda featuring high-profile CEOs, government leaders, and other experts, the Summit will include an exhibition hall where U.S. economic development organizations can host individual or joint booths, display the advantages of their locations, and connect directly with investors. Participants will also be able to submit topic proposals and potentially present at the SelectUSA Academy, a pre-Summit orientation that covers the fundamentals of investing and promoting investment in the United States.
On Tuesday evening, June 21, the American-Danish Business Council (Danish-American Business Forum’s sister organization in Washington D.C.) will host a reception in Washington, D.C., for the Danish delegation. This is another great opportunity for networking and sharing best practices
