2022 SelectUSA Investment Summit


The United States welcomes companies of all sizes, from established multinationals to high-growth startups. The SelectUSA Investment Summit brings the diversity of the United States together under one roof – enabling any business to find the people, resources, and market it needs to be successful.

The SelectUSA Investment Summit draws more than 3,000 attendees. Historically, the Investment Summit attracts more than 1,200 business investors from approximately 80 international markets who join economic developers from almost all U.S. states and territories. In 2019, nearly $100 million in new investment projects were announced at the event.

Housed within the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration, SelectUSA promotes and facilitates business investment in the United States by coordinating related federal government agencies to serve as a single point of contact for investors.

SelectUSA assists U.S. economic development organizations to compete globally for investment by providing information, a platform for international marketing, and high-level advocacy. SelectUSA also helps investors find the information they need to make decisions, connect to the right people at the local level, navigate the federal regulatory system, and find solutions to issues related to the federal government.

The 2021 virtual Investment Summit was an unprecedented success! The first virtual Investment Summit saw record-breaking numbers with over 3,400 participants, representation from all U.S. states and territories, and over 80 international markets. The event featured over 500 world-class speakers and over 200 sessions with interactive virtual exhibition halls for Economic Development Organizations, Service Providers, and SelectUSA Tech participants. SelectUSA was able to bring everyone together by utilizing a very robust networking platform where participants can make the connections they need to push their investments forward.
