Events & Summits

EEIT offers a full range of intimate stakeholder to stakeholder events, summits, and receptions engineered to optimize trade collaborations, networking, deal packaging, and more. 


EEIT events, summits, receptions, and briefings are for members, allied associations, and targeted niche and government stakeholders. Our model provides an intimate, stakeholder to stakeholder collaborative environment intended to unify and package trade executives and their organizations with the government officials, finance, and supportive trajectory-focused architecture that will expedite the path of trade. 


Select media outlets and journalists are considered but not our focus. Select portions of our events and summits are live-streamed and/or public so that supportive niche collaborations can be introduced and peripheral partners can be identified for initiative and project inclusion.


Members utilize our Trade Ambassador awards, grants, scholarships, and fellowships to invite pre-vetted candidates to attend and participate. Our event audiences are selective and invite-only so that each attendee has a unique and strategic contribution that will optimize the event, our member interests, and project success.
