About the Newport Global Summit

The Newport Global Summit is a two-day global leadership retreat held annually at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy in Newport, Rhode Island. The event was established in 2009 to honor a legacy of global partnership and to promote new alignment through business opportunities and personal connections.

This year, the Summit will be held on August 21-22, 2018 at the historic Newport International Tennis Hall of Fame.  The opening dinner will be held at NY Yacht Club at Harbor Court and closing reception will be at the Newport Art Museum. 

The event brings together entrepreneurs and business leaders interested in sharing their knowledge and experience. Guests will include family and private business principals from around the world in a variety of industries. Institutional investors are also invited.  

The entrepreneurial spirit and meaningful long term business relationships formed set this event a unique, and valuable experience.
