The 2019 Investment Summit will be held at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C. from June 10-12.

The previous five Investment Summits attracted thousands of international investors, and past participants have announced $98 billion in new U.S. investment projects.

Representatives from 50 U.S. states and territories and 43 international markets have already registered for this year’s Investment Summit.

2018 Summit PhotoToday, registration is open for the 2019 SelectUSA Investment Summit, and I am looking forward to another successful event connecting global business investors with growth opportunities in the United States. Next year’s Investment Summit will take place from June 10-12, 2019 in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Hilton.

Throughout its existence, the Investment Summit has been a key contributor to advancing the Department of Commerce’s mission to support U.S. economic growth and create opportunities for hardworking Americans. Past Investment Summit participants have announced $98 billion in new investment projects which have been responsible for creating more than 150,000 American jobs.

Those participants include companies like Formosa Plastics, which attended the Investment Summit to find economic development connections in the United States before ultimately announcing a $9.4 billion investment in Louisiana. Grupo Bocar, a tier one automotive parts supplier, attended before deciding to invest $115 million in a facility in Alabama that will support 300 American jobs.

The SelectUSA Investment Summit is where business potential meets business opportunity. Our global Commerce Department team recruits and engages with businesses from around the world that have the desire to invest and the ability to succeed in the United States. Economic development organizations (EDO) representing states and cities from around the country come to the Summit to showcase everything that makes the United States the world’s top destination for business investment.

From decades of experience in the private sector, I’ve come to learn that you need the right people in the room to get deals done. The Investment Summit fosters and provides that environment.

I invite any business that is looking to grow on a global scale to join me at the 2019 SelectUSA Investment Summit. I believe that the time you spend with our team, making connections at networking sessions, talking about opportunities in our matchmaking area, and learning about business trends in our Summit Academy, will pay dividends for years to come.
