Delegation Trips

EAIC Delegation Trips to Europe offer a unique opportunity to get in direct contact with main FDI stakeholders, multipliers and companies in Europe. Accompanied by experienced EAIC staff and a member of the EAIC Advisory Council, EAIC brings you into contact with organizations and business institutions who will be useful partners for future lead generation and visit companies who are planning to build up or expand their production in the U.S. 

In 2018, EAIC organizes more than eight Delegation Trips to Europe on a first come, first serve basis. Therefore potential participants should indicate their interest in advance.

For more information on our FDI Delegation Trips to Europe, check our upcoming events or get in touch with Stefan (aengenheyster[at] to learn more.

Increase your visibility with investors from Europe

The European American Investment Council (EAIC) provides an effective platform for local and regional economic development organizations (EDOs) to market themselves to potential investors from Europe, by means of a widely distributed membership and conferences designed to connect EDOs to potential investors and multipliers.  

European Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has become one of the most important sources of manufacturing job growth in the U.S. It is still challenging for most EDOs to attract these investments to their communities.

The EAIC bridges the gap between EDOs and European investors searching for a location in the U.S. Our Advisory Council consists of Site Selectors, Consulting Firms and other advisers who are experienced with FDIs. They know exactly what European investors are looking for and what information they need in order to decide where to invest. The multilingual and well connected team of the EAIC is ready to boost your community’s success among European investors.

The Promise of FDI

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has become one of the major sources of manufacturing jobs in the US. As American manufacturers have moved manufacturing jobs to China and Mexico, European manufactures have stepped into the void and created millions of well-paying jobs in local communities all over the United States.

Learn more about these impressive developments and how they have a positive impact and the US and its local Communities.
