SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit
The U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration is hosting the inaugural SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit. The two day event will take place at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. on October 31 – November 1, 2013. This unprecedented event will connect businesses and investors from the United States and around the world with U.S. state and regional economic development organizations in an effort to promote investment in the United States. Along with U.S. and international businesses, the SelectUSA Investment Summit will bring together senior White House and Administration officials, subject matter experts, and industry and technical specialists.
The two-day event will include a combination of plenary speeches, panels, and smaller breakout sessions focused on specific business or industry topics, such as the U.S. energy revolution, capital availability, research and development, infrastructure, and the manufacturing resurgence. The event will also feature an exhibit floor populated by U.S. economic development organizations with matchmaking opportunities for investors, and a 'helpdesk' where investors can ask questions directly to relevant federal agencies.
