TX-EU Business Summit Planning Committee


In its 9th year, the Texas-EU Business Summit is the premier event for Texas businesses, entrepreneurs and economic development professionals seeking to expand their footprint in Europe. The summit provides Texas businesses, entrepreneurs, policymakers and

target businesses with an overview of trade and expansion business opportunities in Europe as well as information and connections to make the most of those opportunities.

Texas is already the largest exporting state to the EU. The summit builds on that footprint, focusing on promoting the international trade capacity of Texas businesses and economic development organizations while creating greater awareness regarding the benefits of exporting.

  1. Offers business access to a diverse market of 500 million people with a GDP of $18.5 trillion.
