The base registration fee is $500 per municipality or county and includes two conference attendees, networking opportunities, and up to 10 development projects to be featured in an online Investment Portfolio which will be viewed by interested investors. GWDC will also promote SelectChicago projects at the annual SelectUSA conference, which precedes SelectChicago.

For $3,000, communities can register to be a Showcase Community. This includes base registration features, plus the community provides an all-day tour of their community and development projects. This provides a unique opportunity to create strong relationships with investors and showcase the Chicago area. There is a limit of six communities for the Showcase Tours. Other interested communities will be placed on a wait-list, which depends on the number of foreign investors registered for the conference.

Complimentary Municipal FDI 101 Training included. Online Investment Portfolio registration deadline is March 1, 2018.  Showcase Tour registration deadline is April 1, 2018.
