The IX Summit of the Americas in L.A.

L.A. is a world-class global city with the 3rd largest metropolitan economy in the world and a massive, talented, creative and enormously diverse population. We are eager to host our friends in the Western Hemisphere for the Ninth Summit of the Americas.


The Summit will take place in downtown Los Angeles during the week of June 6, the first time that the United States has hosted the Summit since the inaugural meeting in 1994. L.A. is emblematic of the ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity of not only the United States but of the Americas.

“Los Angeles has a rich history of bringing the world together to share ideas and celebrate what we all have in common as members of the global community.” - Mayor Eric Garcetti

About the Summit of the Americas

The United States will host the Ninth Summit of the Americas the week of June 6, 2022, in Los Angeles, California. In addition to the Leaders Summit, the United States announced three official stakeholder forums: the Ninth Civil Society Forum, the Sixth Young Americas Forum, and the Fourth CEO Summit of the Americas.


Each forum will foster greater dialogue between heads of government and the people and businesses of the Americas to address hemispheric challenges and opportunities including social inclusion, economic recovery, climate change, digital transformation, and democracy.
