SACC Summit 2017 

Business Through Innovation


SACC-USA and SACC New England would like you to save the date for SACC Summit 2017! The annual event will be held on October 25-26 in the vibrant city of Boston, Massachusetts. The Summit is a two-day event with the purpose of gathering corporate members, partners, top speakers, industry leaders, and 20 regional Swedish-American Chambers of Commerce to celebrate Swedish American success, network, share insights, and plan the future of our organizations.


Day 1 will take on the format of talks, panels and group discussions on promoting business through innovation. Specific topics include how the New England region has become a catalyst for innovation in life sciences and academia as well as Sweden's successes in changing the way we interact with technology and the environment. The day will conclude with an upscale cocktail reception and dinner. Up to 150 people, including corporate members of the general public, are expected to attend.

Day 2 is intended for SACC representatives only and will feature internal information, planning and discussions on how our network can reach higher ground. Through workshops and group discussions, we will talk about the future of our organizations and how we can market and support Swedish and American companies through our vast network. Day 2 will conclude with a networking lunch for our SACC representatives, and is expected to welcome approximately 50 participants.

Stay on the lookout for the invitations that will be sent out during the coming month. To get more information about the event, please visit SACC NE website or contact Christina Björnstöm at or Anna Persson at
