The 2017 SelectUSA Investment Summit included more than 2,000 scheduled individual matchmaking meetings between businesses and economic development officials.

The SelectUSA Investment Summit brings the worlds of foreign direct investment (FDI) and economic development together—all under one roof. Attendees will hear from senior U.S. government officials and Cabinet secretaries, executives from some of the world’s top companies, and economic thought leaders at the forefront of a changing global economy.

It all happens again on June 20-22, 2018, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in the Washington, D.C. area.

Past Investment Summit participants have announced more than $71 billion in new investment projects. These projects have created or retained more than 110,000 U.S. jobs. Among those jobs will be nearly 400 in New York, where Romanian distiller Alexandrion is opening a facility. In Kentucky, Japanese manufacturer Takigawa will employ 180 people after making connections at the Investment Summit. MIG Neurons and sRs McCoy are among the Indian companies that have moved into soft landing facilities in Maryland and New Jersey after making connections at the Investment Summit.

SelectUSA received highly positive feedback from international business attendees at the 2017 SelectUSA Investment Summit:

“The SelectUSA Investment Summit far exceeded my expectations. The event was well worth the investment … I was impressed by the quality of the connections made and the value my firm received as an exhibitor.”

 “This is the place to be if you are considering starting a business in the United States.”

“The Investment Summit is absolutely the right forum for launching a new business in the U.S. The value of getting a large number of states and economic development agencies on one floor is priceless.”

“The benefit of attending the SelectUSA Investment Summit is direct, immediate, and purposeful contact with municipal, state, and federal personnel.”

We expect to continue delivering for potential business investors at the 2018 SelectUSA Investment Summit. Last year’s Investment Summit drew a record number of participants, including more than 600 economic developers from 52 U.S. states and territories.

International business investors utilized the online matchmaking platform to schedule face-to-face meetings with American economic developers. In the 79,000-sq.-ft. Exhibition Hall, these investors saw what dozens of U.S. states, counties, cities, territories, and regions had to offer.

There is simply no better place to connect to the economic development community than at the Investment Summit.
