The German American Chambers of Commerce have hosted the German American Business Outlook (GABO) annually since 2009. The GABO is one of the most important economic indicators of German American business relations.

Each year, we conduct a survey targeted to German subsidiaries in the US to assess current economic developments and trends in transatlantic business. The results of this survey will be presented and discussed at our in person event. We will have a panel of several executives across different industries discuss their outlook for 2024, touching on important economic, workforce, and investment trends. 

Join us as we celebrate the new year on a high note! Don’t miss this chance to build your professional network in the German American business community and celebrate with your fellow members.
