SACC Summit 2017


  • Boston

We are very proud and excited to announce to our community that SACC-NE has been selected to co-host this year's SACC Summit in Boston, the birthplace of the United States and symbol of Swedish-American trade! SACC Summit is the country's biggest and most followed Swedish-American event of the year. We are particularly excited to share with you that the theme of the summit is to highlight areas in business, academia, and society in which Sweden continually excels. We are working hard to put together an unforgettable program full of thought-provoking discussions on the Swedish edge in international business, Boston as a catalyst for innovation, Swedish-Americans disrupting big data and AI, gaming apps, a TED talk, sustainability and smart cities, and more!

SACC Summit is scheduled for October 25-26th, 2017 and will be attended by regional directors, chairmen, and key thought leaders from 19 SACC chambers across the country. The first day of the conference (October 25) will be open to the general public, with participation from leading Swedish and US government officials, executives, thought leaders and influencers. The second day (October 26), titled "Reaching Higher Ground", will feature speakers and panelists from our internal network, emphasizing how different chambers view best practices, ideas for future collaborations and improvements designed to make the SACC network even better
