Swiss Peer to Peer Conference 2020

Swiss Peer to Peer Conference 2020

This year’s event is more relevant than ever with discussions concerning solutions to doing business for a post-COVID world. This October's event will provide the ideal opportunity to network and strengthen the Swiss business community in the United States in these uncertain times.

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. For more details on Switzerland’s economic footprint in the US see here [pdf].

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