Michael Edgar and Caryn Kahn from SelectChicago at the SelectUSA Summit 2019

Michael Edgar and Caryn Kahn never stopped moving since meeting with Governor Pritzker in Springfield. In the run-up to SelectUSA, we scheduled over 20 face-to-face meetings in Washington DC and completed printing the 2019 Deal Book.

The SelectChicago June 2019 schedule was busy with networking. Our team worked all sides of the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) program. We met with state and US federal officials, met with international investors, and organized connections with our Chicago International Trade Commissioners Association (CITCA) and International Trade Association of Greater Chicago (ITAGC).

We also met with a number of service professionals ranging from Kankakee to Racine and Michigan City to Whiteside County looking to learn more about collaborating with SelectChicago®. We fielded calls from alliance partners in China, Poland, Netherlands and the Middle East.
