2022 China Challenge Summit   

Register Now
(Virtual & In-Person Options)

The China Challenge Summit will be one of the most important gatherings of leaders and experts in U.S.-China relations, international trade and business, national security policy, and others to provide private- and public-sector leaders with both strategic insight and tactical advice for operating in the current global environment. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from and engage with a unique group of China specialists on today’s most salient diplomatic and industrial challenges. 

Scheduled for in-person on June 9 at Utah Valley University, the objective is to convene a high-profile group of leaders from across the nation and world — including you and your colleagues — to yield quality thought-leadership around three themes:      

  • China's geopolitical strategy and U.S. foreign policy towards China.
  • China's economic, trade, business, and foreign policies.
  • How U.S. businesses and policymakers should respond to these challenges.
Featured Speakers

Hosted at UVU The Noorda Center for the Performing Arts at Utah Valley University, the Summit will showcase best practices and deliver actionable advice for U.S. business and policy leaders as they navigate the dynamic and challenging global issues of today.
