Event description


Fairfax County, Northern Virginia, has it all! More than 400 foreign companies have chosen it as a location to do business in the US. Its close proximity to both Washington D.C. – the nation’s capital – and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), makes it the ideal place for business balanced by real quality of life for companies from all around the world. Add to this the fact that Fairfax County is the economic engine and innovation center of the Washington D.C. metro area, and one truly realizes the “Power of Place”.

Join the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority for a special, invitation only event in Tysons, Fairfax County’s largest business district. You will have the opportunity to network and establish potential partnerships with foreign and domestic companies, while enjoying spectacular views of the Greater Washington D.C. Metro area.
