AmCham Germany will hold its 16th Transatlantic Business Conference on Thursday, November 17, 2022, at the Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof, Frankfurt am Main. On the eve of the conference, WednesdayNovember 16, 2022, a networking reception will be hosted at our co-organizer Commerzbank. Participation in the networking reception at Commerzbank is limited to 80 people and one representative per member company, due to the maximum capacity limits at Commerzbank Tower. Priority will be given to AmCham Germany's leadership, as well as partners and sponsors of the conference.

An official invitation including the possibility to register for the Transatlantic Business Conference and the networking reception at Commerzbank in Frankfurt will be sent out in September 2022. 

This year's Transatlantic Business Conference will focus on the impacts of the German "Zeitenwende" and the U.S. midterm elections on the transatlantic business community. Experts will assess the significance of both developments for transatlantic cooperation on a whole range of global issues: from geo-economic and security challenges for the business community and the transatlantic partnership, to jointly combating climate change and fostering innovation and cooperation in the healthcare and the energy sector. Furthermore, with Frankfurt being the main financial hub of Germany, the topic “Sustainable Finance” will play a prominent role.
