Gala 2017

New in 2017— LEADERSHIP Level with Speaking Role!

Gala 2017 will be held at the Omni Shoreham Washington, with a reception from 6:00-7:00 pm and dinner from 7:00-9:00 pm. We anticipate that 400-500 leaders from the business, government, diplomatic, and think tank communities will attend. 

As always, the gala program will feature notable and influential speakers on US-China relations.

The event will also recognize USCBC and its membership’s history of leadership, achievements, and partnerships for an expanded US-China commercial relationship. The Gala continues to be an important fundraising effort that strengthens USCBC's ability to serve its member companies.

Corporate tables with 8-10 seats are available at four sponsorship levels: Leadership ($50,000), Benefactor ($20,000), Patron ($15,000), and Supporter ($7,500). Each level offers varying benefits, as detailed in the Sponsorship Opportunities and Benefits Summary. Participating member companies are welcome to invite guests, such as business partners, clients, and spouses, to fill their Gala table. We would greatly appreciate your company's commitment at the highest level possible to show your support and fund the work USCBC does throughout the year.

Please join us for this special evening by pledging a table sponsorship or purchasing individual tickets. Full details about the registration process can be found here on our Gala website or by contacting our Director of Programs Gloria González-Micklin ([email protected]).

We look forward to seeing you at Gala 2017 to celebrate more than four decades of USCBC’s work to promote sustainable commercial relations between the United States and China.
