Overview

The 51st annual Washington Conference on the Americas will feature remarks by senior U.S. government officials and leaders from across the Western Hemisphere. The event will offer an early opportunity for participants to hear directly from the new Biden administration on its hemispheric policy agenda and initiatives to collaborate with regional partners to move the Americas forward in the Americas in 2021 and beyond. 

In addition to the virtual event, we are also anticipating an in-person conference keynote luncheon at the State Department toward the end of the year, which will be strictly limited in size.
