SelectUSA has announced that it is extending its deadline for proposals from economic developers until November 30, 2017 for the 2018 Summit. SelectUSA is a government-wide program of the International Trade Administration (ITA) under the Department of Commerce (DOC) that assists economic development organizations to compete globally for investment by providing information, a platform for international marketing, and high-level advocacy. 

SelectUSA is eager to work with economic development communities to plan and promote spin-off events to attract SelectUSA Summit participants to states, cities or regions. The dates of the SelectUSA Summit (June 20-22, 2018) allow for spin-off events to take place the week of June 25-29, 2018 with ample travel time during the weekend in-between (June 23-24, 2018).

All international SelectUSA Summit participants will also be actively encouraged to extend their stay in the United States and connect directly with economic developers, business leaders and local experts while exploring promising investment opportunities in various communities. The deadline for the SelectUSA Investment Summit Call for Proposals has been extended to Thursday, November 30. 

SelectUSA is encouraging economic developers to mobilize teams and local networks in order to plan a program to attract SelectUSA Summit delegations to visit various regions. SelectUSA and U.S. Export Assistance Centers across the country are prepared to work with economic developers to plan and implement spin-off events to showcase the tremendous investment opportunities in the U.S. market.

Since its inception, SelectUSA has facilitated more than $25 billion in investment, creating and/or retaining tens of thousands of American jobs.
