2017 Newport Global Summit

The Newport Global Summit is a two day event held annually in Newport, Rhode Island, at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy since 2009.  The event was established to bring together leaders of the global economy to share knowledge and build bridges for cooperation through business opportunity and common purpose. 

The agenda for the 2017 Summit will be consistent with previous 7Sisters events and will feature captivating presentations from successful entrepreneurs, inspirational leaders, investors and family businesses.  Guests from previous events have commented that it is the entrepreneurial spirit and meaningful long term business relationships formed which sets this event apart from other events they have attended.

Entrepreneurship, investment and global trade are historic drivers of economic growth.  Newport is known for its Golden Age of the Colonial Era and Gilded Age mansions on the shores of the Atlantic, In this natural setting which reflects upon waves of renaissance and entrepreneurial spirit, we are inspired to explore new potential for economic prosperity.
