Wrap Up: Team Texas SelectUSA 2018

The SelectUSA Summit is a premier foreign direct investment and industry event. The summit serves as the connection point for businesses to obtain the necessary resources for success with investment in the U.S. Team Texas was represented by twenty-nine members at the 2018 SelectUSA Investment Summit, which was held June 20-22, 2018, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

The summit attracted more than 3,000 participants with the common interest and objective of business investment and expansion in the United States. Attendees included foreign companies, site location consultants, United States Embassy connections, economic developers and others. Team Texas members represented the organization as partnering sponsors, booth participants or hospitality event attendees.

There was a myriad of industries present at the summit, giving Team Texas members the opportunity to meet with a diverse group of prospects. Examples of these industries include manufacturing, biotechnology, aerospace, information technology, life sciences, automotive, plastics and digital media. Connections were made with contacts across the United States, as well as many others spanning the globe.

Team Texas members promoted all regions of the state. The Team Texas booth generated many new contacts working on behalf of many active project leads as they are presently working towards relocation or expansion. Additionally, the prominent Texas Party Under the Stars Hospitality event attracted a host of great new contacts for Team Texas members.

Subsequently, Team Texas’ major presence at the 2018 SelectUSA Investment Summit was a certain success. The organization maintains a common goal of creating opportunities for job creation, increased investment and economic diversification in Texas. The summit served as a facilitator of this goal and our vision of promoting Texas as the best state for a myriad of industries and continued economic strength.
