ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- International Chinese Entrepreneurs Association (ICEA), along with conference co-sponsors, the America China Civic Exchange, the City of Albuquerque, Office of Economic Development and investUS LLC, will host more than 150 business, economic development, and education leaders at the 2017 ICEA US-China Business Matchmaking Summit on October 2-5, 2017 at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

The event will give New Mexico-established business leaders and entrepreneurs the opportunity to connect and establish business relationships with visiting Chinese delegates, resulting in long-term economic growth and creation of private sector jobs in New Mexico.

"This is the first time that such a large group of Chinese has come to New Mexico seeking business opportunities," said Jian Zhu, Summit Chair and ICEA incoming Board of Directors Chair. "Our goal is for people to attend, pen in hand, ready to sign memorandums of understanding and letters of intent."

Unlike typical conferences, attendee engagement at the US-China Business Matchmaking Summit begins well before the event. ICEA and investUS have been actively engaged in business and education matchmaking dialogs with interested Chinese and New Mexico parties, facilitating translation, vetting prospects and assisting with cross-cultural negotiations. Over 100 New Mexico-China business opportunities have been identified and qualified by event organizers.

Speakers will include Mayor Richard J. Berry, City of Albuquerque; Deborah Burns, CEO and Director, investUS LLC; Garrey Carruthers, PhD, Chancellor & President, New Mexico State University; Song Cao, President, ICEA; Mark Lautman, Cecd, Founding Director, Community Economics Lab; Steve McKee, President, McKee Wallwork + Company; Gary Oppedahl, Director, Economic Development Department; and more.

ICEA is a nonprofit organization that focuses on empowering Chinese entrepreneurs around the world with leadership and management skills through the practical interaction of networking and communications, and providing a platform for business leaders to collaborate and partner together.
