C3 Summit 2013 Will Drive Critical Business Dialogue

In partnership with the Commercial Service arm of the Department of Commerce (DOC) the 2013 C3 Summit will launch the American Business & Education Pavilion. With a focus on helping U.S. businesses increase exports to new markets in the Middle East, the American Business & Education Pavilion will continue to bring together the largest and most significant gathering of buyers from the Middle East who are interested in working with companies from the United States.

This invitation-only, business-to business pavilion is exclusively designed to facilitate critical business introductions while providing an ideal platform for developing new business opportunities. Additionally, the 2013 C3 Summit plenary sessions will play host to decision makers responsible for effecting and shaping social, political and business practices on the global stage.

Capitalizing on the success of the C3 Summit 2012, the centerpiece of this year’s event will be another comprehensive program showcasing new developments in commerce, education, and entrepreneurial empowerment. Panel discussions will offer in-depth, global market analysis and business recommendations from reputable, leading companies, industry leaders, and thought leaders in all sectors of commerce.
