WASHINGTON, DC – The US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC) is proud to announce the country’s largest business-to-business conference convened by Pan Asian Americans, CelebrAsian Procurement Conference 2017, to be held on May 31 ~ June 2, 2017 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, in San Diego, California.

CelebrAsian is the flagship annual national conference of Washington, DC-based USPAACC. Through innovative and educational programs, CelebrAsian has continuously offered diverse suppliers significant tools and resources necessary to effectively navigate the mainstream.

For corporate and government partners, CelebrAsian has served as the go-to venue to connect with peers and industry leaders, source quality suppliers, and forums for substantive discussions on issues related to supplier diversity, as well as on innovation, business growth and job creation.

“We are excited to bring a national conference of this magnitude to San Diego – home to a burgeoning Asian American population who compose 11% of the more than 3 million area residents,” said Susan Au Allen, USPAACC National President & CEO. “San Diego has a bright future anchored to its blue-sky business climate that attracts a relatively young population, white-collar demographics and talent incubators, plus an important share of growth industries like software, communications, defense, bio engineering, and entertainment – and we want CelebrAsian to contribute to the wellspring of success stories that would emanate from this part of the country.”

For CelebrAsian 2017, over 500 pre-scheduled one-on-one business matchmaking meetings will be held between buyers and suppliers, across various industries and with over 50 commodities to be purchased in the next 12-18 months. It will be focused and effective for conference participants.

Last year, CelebrAsian was held in Atlanta, Georgia where over 800 “best of the best” participants came in full force from all over the country, including 94 corporations, 22 government agencies, and 14 media partners.
