Industry Spotlight

At this year’s Investment Summit, we’ll be shining the plenary stage spotlight on four key industries:
  • Digital Economy
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Biotech/Life Sciences
  • Food & Beverage/Agriculture

Panel Discussions

The 2019 Investment Summit will feature two panel discussions for each of the above industry sectors. The first will be with top tier executives of U.S. and foreign companies, providing background and information on the current state of affairs within that industry. Those discussions will be followed by a second panel featuring U.S. governors who will discuss attraction strategies focused around that same sector.

Industry Pavilion

New this year, the SelectUSA Investment Summit will feature an industry pavilion, where industry association experts will exhibit and network with both EDOs and investors to provide industry advice and an unbiased perspective as to where companies should prioritize investment in the U.S.

“State of the Industry” Presentations

Each participating industry association will be provided the opportunity to make a 30 minute “State of the Industry” presentation during the Investment Academy on June 10.


The 2019 SelectUSA Investment Summit matchmaking system will allow for easy industry matching and will clearly display new Summit registrants that have signed up in each industry vertical. Economic development organization (EDO) exhibitors have identified two (2) priority industries that they are targeting for investment attraction. These industries will be identified in their exhibitor profiles both in the program guide and in the matchmaking system to help investors better identify the right states to meet with at the Summit.

Industry Reports

New this year, firms and EDOs who signed up for the Summit, prior to April 1 receive a complimentary custom report about opportunities and trends in their specific industry sectors in the United States. Summit participants will receive customized data that will help to better prepare for the Investment Summit and for matchmaking.
