AmCham Executives Visit Washington DC and Boston

Jacob Dornbos

From May 8 through May 12, executives from AmChams in Europe gathered in the United States to engage with companies, organizations and key government agencies in order to strengthen partnerships and gain insight into the current U.S. business and political climate. Representatives from 33 AmChams participated in the annual conference, which took place in Washington DC and Boston, Massachusetts.
 
Washington DC
In Washington DC, the delegation received timely insights into the new Trump Administration through a series of high-level briefings from administration officials, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and several leading political experts.
 
Briefing sessions were hosted by Google, Beekeeper Group, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Hill + Knowlton, and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
 
The Washington DC portion of the conference concluded with the annual Transatlantic Reception, hosted by the European Division of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The program featured keynote remarks by Daniel Mullaney, Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Europe and the Middle East.
 
Boston, Massachusetts
A slightly smaller delegation from 23 AmChams continued on to Boston, visiting some of the region’s most innovative companies and listened to thought leaders from two of the most highly respected universities in the world.
 
The Boston segment began appropriately in the city’s Innovation District with an introduction to the Innovation Ecosystem by representatives from the City of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (MOITI).
 
Company visits included stops at Autodesk BUILD, MassChallenge Boston, MassRobotics, IBM Watson, Analog Devices, Linkage and Boston Scientific.
 
University visits included roundtable briefings with Professor Thomas Malone at MIT’s Center for Collective Intelligence as well as Robert Lawrence, Professor of International Trade and Investment Harvard Kennedy School.
 
To cap off a highly successful week, executives had an opportunity to attend a Boston Red Sox baseball game at the legendary Fenway Park courtesy of Dell-EMC.
 
AmChams in Europe wishes to thank the City of Boston, the Department of Commerce, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce - as well as the many companies and organizations who contributed to making this year’s conference a tremendous success.
