Example: Swiss Peer to Peer Conference 2020
After the big success of the 1st event held in Chicago in 2019 – an edition that connected 94 business executives including 17 Swiss company executives and 32 representatives of Swiss subsidiaries located in the United States-, the second edition of the Swiss Peer-to-Peer Conference will take place in Miami in October 2020.
The US economy has seen positive growth in all sectors over the last few years and as a result opportunities for Swiss companies in the US are at an all-time high. Switzerland already has a tremendously strong economic footprint in the United States. It is the 7th largest foreign investor in the United States, making it by far the most important destination for Swiss FDI. In other words, the U.S. absorbs about one-fifth of total Swiss investment abroad, which is more than in Germany, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom combined. More than 500 Swiss companies with about 3,500 business locations doing business all over the United States create almost half a million jobs.
Swiss companies do business in all fifty states, with an exceptionally strong presence in terms of number of affiliates in California, New York, Illinois, Texas, and Florida. It is not surprising that they are active in a huge variety of business sectors ranging from precision instruments and machinery to the food industry, financial services, mining, and many more. Swiss companies rank among the top three foreign employers in several states, including New York, California, New Jersey, Maine, Wyoming, and Delaware.

The conference language will be English and the program is subject to changes. The evening reception is open for spouses and partners.
