A U.S.-Arab Global Event
In partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce Commercial Service and cosponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, C3 Summit is an exclusive event dedicated to building new relationships, fostering existing partnerships and exchanging best practices between the U.S. and the Arab world by building a cohesive global community through collaboration and international commerce.
The three tenets of the conference revolve around our vision to build, foster and strengthen relationships between the U.S. and Arab businesses, policy makers and civil society:
Community: create a global platform for exchanging "best practices"
Collaboration: promote dialogue and grow existing relationships
Commerce: facilitate new ventures and opportunities
C3 Summit will assemble business leaders, policy makers, educators and civil society members to uncover and promote both U.S. and Arab world initiatives that are focused on economic, cultural and social initiatives.
The time is now to either establish and/or grow your business in both the U.S. and Arab World – and C3 will provide the knowledge “how best” to navigate and reap the benefits of each region’s ample economic and trade opportunities.

"The C3 Summit was quite a worthwhile, valuable event, which thoroughly defined the new paradigm in U.S.-Arab Relations. Not only did I learn from the various speakers' topics, but also too was the networking opportunity a success - especially with so many important people from the global community present and available to each other at the same place and time."

"The participants at C3 Summit are such that I would find much interest to continue the dialogue beyond the conference itself. When you listen to the speakers, the message is clear, technology and innovation are going to change the face of the Middle East. The best thing to do in the Middle East today is to invest in the internet space and the youth."

I am looking forward to many more C3 events like this. The whole notions of community, of collaboration and of commerce—what could be better, it's really a terrific opportunity!"
