Held from May 29 to June 1, 2018, at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland, CelebrAsian turned the spotlight on the transformative effects of today's technology-smart world on accelerated and robust business growth, challenges in talent acquisition and retention, and the application of innovative technology in various industries.
With the theme "Smart World: Business - Talents - Technology,"

CelebrAsian attracted 20 Fortune 500 CPOs, CTOs, and CIOs, as well as hundreds of Pan Asian American business owners, suppliers wanting to connect with procurement opportunities, and marketing directors and managers of major corporations, large nonprofits, and government agencies. Washington, D.C.'s diplomatic corps, and trade officials were also well represented.
Corporate Co-Chairs included Bank of America, JPMorgan, Chase, Nissan, and Wells Fargo. Asian American Business Co-Chairs were Ampcus, Indotronix Avani, and Pyramid Consulting.
In addition to informative programs and high-level networking events, procurement opportunities were abundant, with about 500 prescheduled one-on-one business match-making meetings held between top-caliber Asian American suppliers and serious buyers from Fortune 1000 corporations, government agencies, and large national nonprofits.
