Global Business Summit on Early Childhood: registration open

Registration is open now for the 2018 ReadyNation Global Business Summit on Early Childhood. This summit will convene hundreds of business leaders from around the world in New York City at the Grand Hyatt Hotel on November 1-2. The Summit will inspire and equip these leaders to take action to support young children in order to build the current and future workforce. There will also be a special pre- and post-conference session for country teams that want to learn more about how to build a network of business champions for early childhood in their country.

ReadyNation’s 12th major business summit will convene 200+ business people and policymakers to learn how to strengthen the economy and workforce through investments in early childhood. This is the only business-to-business gathering that inspires and equips executives from companies of all sizes and industries to promote solutions that prepare young children to succeed in education, work and life. 

U.S. participants must be business people (outside the early childhood sector), senior policy officials, economists or sponsors/funders. This includes staff from business groups such as chambers of commerce. A children's advocate or other policy expert may attend with a team of at least four business people. Participants from outside the U.S. can be from any sector.  Special pre- and post-conference sessions for non-U.S. participants will focus on developing networks of business champions in a variety of countries.
