U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo has announced today that registration is now open for SelectUSA’s annual Investment Summit to be held May 1-4, 2023 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

The SelectUSA Investment Summit is the highest-profile event dedicated to promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States. Traditionally drawing more than 3,000 attendees, the Investment Summit has received its reputation for being the top event in the United States for FDI promotion as it serves to facilitate connections between investors, companies, economic developers, and industry experts to seize opportunities available through U.S. investment.

“We are excited to bring SelectUSA back to National Harbor to establish connections, have crucial conversations on foreign direct investment, and create a space for participants to learn why the U.S. remains the most attractive place in the world for businesses to invest and grow.” said Secretary Gina Raimondo. “For 10 years and counting, the U.S. has ranked as the top destination for global companies to invest and SelectUSA is critical to this success. I look forward to returning in May to join a cohort of gifted public and private sector leaders to discuss a wide range of opportunities for partnership and investment here in the U.S.”

The Investment Summit focuses on the U.S. investment environment, industry trends, and creating business opportunities. Additionally, the Investment Summit features senior government officials, C-Suite business executives, and various industry leaders.

The 2023 SelectUSA Investment Summit will offer exciting opportunities for all attendees with innovation and entrepreneurship at the forefront. The SelectUSA Tech program, which connects early-stage and startup technology companies to prospects for advancement in the U.S. market, will allow participants to exhibit their products and services at branded booths with the opportunity to upload a product and service demo video, apply to pitch in front of a panel of judges, participate in workshops and Investment Academy sessions, and other engagement opportunities.

The Select Global Women in Tech (SGWIT) Mentorship Network, geared towards international women founders, entrepreneurs, and executives in the technology sector, will see its third iteration of programming at the SelectUSA Investment Summit. SGWIT participants will be matched in sessions with an experienced, successful mentor to help them develop a market entry strategy, tailor their product and promotion for success in the U.S. market, gain access to an exclusive networking platform, and hear from successful global women founders.

The Biden Administration has taken ambitious action to tackle climate change and set the U.S. on the path to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. SelectUSA recognizes the importance of global climate priorities and has organized sessions at the 2023 Investment Summit to bring together stakeholders in key clean energy and sectors such as advanced batteries, energy storage, civil nuclear energy, offshore wind, and semiconductors.

The SelectUSA Investment Summit draws more than 3,000 attendees and has directly impacted more than $59 billion in new U.S. investment projects, supporting over 50,000 jobs across the United States and its territories. Historically, the Investment Summit attracts more than 1,200 business investors from approximately 80 international markets who join economic developers from almost every U.S. state and territory.
