We attended the 2017 SelectUSA Investment Summit (June 18-20, 2017), which was held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C. SelectUSA welcomed more than 2,800 participants from 64 international markets and 51 U.S. states and territories.
The summit's theme – "Grow with US" – highlighted the innovative business climate in the United States and featured investment opportunities from every corner of the country. The increased networking time provided new, unparalleled opportunities for a range of global investors to engage with state, regional, and local economic developers. Global executives including GM's Mary Barra and General Electric's Jeffrey Immelt shared a roadmap of how businesses of any size, in any industry, can both benefit from and contribute to the U.S. economy – and grow.
