About the nalb forum

North American Lithuanian Business Forum (NALB Forum) – the premier event of the year highlighting the strong business ties between Lithuania and North America and importance of connecting transatlantic commerce leaders in dialogue and partnership.


The genesis of NALB Forum goes back to 2019 when Lithuanian professionals and clubs met at the Lithuanian Embassy in Washington, D.C. to brainstorm about collaborative projects.  This meeting catalyzed the first NALB event which, because of the pandemic, was held virtually in April 2021.  With restrictions lifted, and recognizing the importance of person-to-person exchanges, the group then organized the first live NALB Forum on June 29th, 2022, at the Union League of Philadelphia, attracting more than 200 attendees and 37 speakers for a full day of discussions and networking. We expect this year to bring more than 300 attendees to Chicago. From business executives to rising professionals, leaders across the entire spectrum of the business ecosystem and government officials are invited to attend. ​

Attendees will be able to participate in a dynamic exchange of ideas, and discover new opportunities.  At the NALB Forum 2023, featured sectors are: life sciences, advanced manufacturing and services, startups, film and entertainment industries, transport and logistics.

The NALB Forum is under the official patronage of the President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda and Illinois Governor J. B. Pritzker.  The event is organized by the diplomatic representations of Lithuania in the U.S. and Canada, the Baltic American Chamber of Commerce, Global Lithuanian Leaders, the Lithuanian American Community, the Lithuanian World Arts Council, World Business Chicago and these Lithuanian professional clubs: Rotary Club of Chicagoland Lithuanians, Lithuanian American Business Association in Los Angeles (LABA.LA), Lithuanian City of Chicago Club, and New York Lithuanian Professionals.
