Apply to Exhibit or Sponsor

Before You Apply:

Terms: EDO, Non-EDO, Exhibitor, and Sponsor

Economic Development Organizations (EDOs)

  • An EDO typically represents a U.S. state, territory, region, tribe and/or locality that conducts economic development activities in support of their community.
  • All EDOs must apply and be approved by SelectUSA to receive EDO exhibitor designation and pricing at the Investment Summit.

The Virtual Exhibition Hall at the SelectUSA Investment Summit is the premier opportunity for U.S. state, territorial, tribal, regional, and local EDOs to share opportunities directly with international investors.

An EDO wishing to amplify their presence at the virtual Investment Summit may also participate as a sponsor.

Non-EDO

We welcome participation in the virtual Exhibition Hall from service providers and other associations or organizations. A service provider is a company that advises or facilitates a firm’s investment decisions on legal matters, tax issues, site selection, etc. A trade/business association that facilitates investment may also participate as an exhibitor or sponsor.

Exhibitor

Approved organizations may purchase an exhibit booth within the virtual Exhibition Hall. The purchase price of a booth is different for EDOs and non-EDOs and is listed within the pricing section below.

Sponsor

Organizations may select to gain amplified exposure outside of a virtual exhibit booth through sponsorships. Organizations can sponsor at the diamond, gold, silver, and bronze levels, each of which include virtual exhibit booths and additional full conference passes. Please see the sponsor offerings below.

Each exhibiting or sponsoring organization must complete a contract to participate. You will be contacted within 15 business days of submitting your initial application.

Step 3: Access your Virtual Exhibitor Portal

Once a contract is signed, the organization’s point of contact will receive a link to their virtual exhibitor or sponsor portal. Information in the portal includes the exhibitor kit, link to register personnel, invoice, payment options, etc. Exhibitors and sponsors will also be able to upload their logo, organization description, PDFs, videos, and any other materials through this portal.
