More than 1,500 German companies chose to locate in the North Eastern United States – a vibrant region for business and transatlantic trade which generates over 23 percent of GDP. The East Coast German American Industry Forum offers a perfect platform to connect with potential business partners and peers, gain unique perspectives on current business topics and gather valuable insights into economical and industry trends.
The all-day conference features keynote speeches, panel discussions and in-depth workshops addressing a wide range of issues affecting companies doing business in the U.S. and in a transatlantic context.
In particular, German Mittelstand companies, as well as U.S. SMEs are being credited as the key drivers for economic growth, innovation and employment creation. The Mittelstand/SMEs stand for high-value manufactured products which occupy many worldwide niche markets and leadership positions in numerous B2B segments.
Attending the German American Industry Forum is a must for company representatives engaged in cross-border business and in positioning their respective companies on both sides of the Atlantic for growth and success. 200-250 representatives of German and American businesses located throughout the North East are expected to attend.
