USCBC’s 45th Anniversary Gala

December 5, 2018 | 6:00 – 9:00 pm | The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC


USCBC turned 45 this year and we invite all our members and their guests to join us for this important milestone celebration on Wednesday, December 5, at the Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC, from 6:00-9:00 pm. USCBC’s 45th anniversary comes at a critical moment in US-China commercial relations; your support will ensure we remain at the forefront of business-focused advocacy in Washington and Beijing.

The Gala program will:

  • Feature Ambassador Carla A. Hills, this year's Distinguished Honoree, who will offer her thoughts and insights on the US-China relationship, how the two nations can engage more constructively, and the role of American businesses in restoring the positive momentum in this vital relationship
  • Recognize USCBC and its membership’s history of expanding and supporting the US-China commercial relationship
  • Gather 400-500 stakeholders from the business, government, diplomatic, and think tank communities

Show your support by funding the work USCBC does throughout the year by pledging a table sponsorship at the highest level possible.

 Corporate tables with 8 - 10 seats are available at four sponsorship levels:

  • Leadership ($50,000) – Includes speaking role! Sold Out!
  • Benefactor ($25,000)
  • Patron ($15,000)
  • Supporter ($10,000)

Our team will work closely with you to ensure you receive full sponsorship benefits and to deliver a memorable evening for you and your partners, customers, and clients.
