About Us

Founded in New York in 1887, The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce (IACC) is an independent, private, not-for-profit US Corporation devoted to fostering trade, tourism, investments and economic cooperation between Italy and the United States.

The Chamber is a founding member of the European American Chamber of Commerce for the U.S. (EACC), is affiliated with the Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America (U.S. Chamber) and with Assocamerestero, the association of the Italian Chambers of Commerce abroad that represents more than 70 Chambers all over the world.

The current fast-paced and dynamic global economy requires an extra edge in order to remain competitive. The IACC, through its membership network and the affiliation with Assocamerestero, the EACC, and the U.S. Chamber provides its members with the right business contacts and an opportunity to extend their global outreach.

The Chamber brings together individual entrepreneurs and businesses with the goal of assisting its members by supplying relevant business contacts as well as a possibility of interaction with government agencies, trade associations and international organizations both in the United States and in Italy.

One of the Chamber’s roles is to provide assistance and training for future generations of managers and entrepreneurs. This is attained through the IACC J-1 Visa Exchange visitor program as well as the Young Executive Committee’s activities.

The offices of the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce are located at 11 E. 44th street, nearby Grand Central, right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan’s thriving business district.
