CelebrAsian, the national flagship event of the US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC), is the country’s largest and most established business-to-business conference convened by Pan Asian Americans. CelebrAsian serves as the nation’s premier venue for procurement opportunities, innovation and job growth for the more than 2 million Pan Asian American-owned businesses nationwide with annual revenue that surpass $700 billion and continue to grow.

Leading the roster of corporate co-chairs is PepsiCo, whose continued partnership with USPAACC helps to advance growth among Pan Asian American and diverse businesses.

Strong support from the financial industry – Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo – and automotive company Nissan – show the value and ROI they place in their commitment to USPAACC.

Similarly, co-chairing the Conference are established Pan Asian American businesses – Ampcus, Indotronix Avani, and Pyramid Consulting – who appreciate what USPAACC does for the Pan Asian American business community nationwide.

Nooyi, CelebrAsian’s Chair for a record fifth time, will also hold a fireside chat to share her journey from India to the pinnacle of success, during the Excellence Awards Dinner on May 30.

Through innovative and first-to-market programs, CelebrAsian brings value to diverse businesses and provides a platform for the “who’s who” in the business community, subject matter expert speakers, industry leaders, visionaries, disruptors, and high-performance business owners who come together to exchange information, best practices, proven strategies and solutions for robust growth – for three days, under one roof.
