The SelectUSA Investment Summit is the highest-profile event dedicated to promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States. This signature event provides an unparalleled opportunity to bring together companies from all over the world, economic development organizations from every corner of the nation, and other parties working to facilitate business investment in the United States. Featuring senior government officials, C-Suite business executives, and other thought leaders, each summit focuses on a timely theme related to the U.S. investment environment, industry trends, and new opportunities.
The SelectUSA Investment Academy is designed especially for investors and representatives from economic development organizations (EDOs) who want to make the most of the SelectUSA Investment Summit. Participants gain valuable, first-hand insight into the U.S. investment environment through focused, thematic sessions in which expert practitioners from a variety of investment-related fields share practical tools, strategies, and actionable information.
