The SelectUSA 2013 Investment Summit is at capacity, but that doesn’t mean investors around the world who couldn’t register can’t be a part of the event.

If you haven’t heard, we’ll be pairing investors from around the world with federal and state leaders to find the best investment opportunities in the country. Economic development organizations (EDOs) representatives from 47 states, three U.S. territories, and Washington, D.C., will be there. Companies representing 60 worldwide markets will be in attendance.

President Obama has made attracting FDI a priority, and he will provide the keynote address, along with many senior officials from his administration and leaders from the private sector.

We know it’s going to be an incredible event for any person, business, or organization with an interest in FDI into the United States.

That’s why we want to make sure that leaders and organizations around the world who can’t attend the event can still learn about FDI opportunities and trends. We want to spread the word far and wide that the United States is open for business, and there’s no better place in the world for companies to invest than right here in the United States.

It’ll be easy to keep up with updates from the Summit. We’ll be live-streaming all of the events in the main ballroom, thanks to support from our friends at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Check out the official Summit agenda to find out which speeches and panel discussions are included.

We’ll be sharing real-time updates on Twitter from the @SelectUSA account. Event attendees and partner organizations will share information and opportunities using #SelectUSA.

Under Secretary of International Trade Francisco Sánchez will host a Twitter chat on Thursday, Oct. 31 at noon EST, where he will answer questions about the Summit, the importance of FDI, and what the United States is doing to attract more FDI. We encourage you to participate using #SelectUSA to ask your questions.

We’ll have posts here on our blog during and after the Summit, providing some crucial information about FDI and testimonials from Summit attendees.

The White House will stream President Obama’s address at http://www.whitehouse.gov/live.

If you’re interested in learning about new investment opportunities for your business, make sure to follow us as we share information from this important Summit.

FDI supports millions of jobs in the United States, and we think this Summit will help bring new companies, new jobs, and new partnerships to the United States.
