Who We Are

The US Welcome Pavilion is a collaborative effort to promote economic development, international trade and travel to the United States with support from public and private sector business and tourism sponsors. Our goal is to provide an educational center where US-based companies and public sector organizations can highlight both business and recreational opportunities to the eight million attendees expected during the Rio Summer Games from August 5 – 21, 2016. This program is free of charge to all who attend. Displays, cultural performances, interactive activities, meeting spaces and private hospitality are only part of the components of a vibrant, unequaled American cultural experience. Featured will be participating tourism groups, city, state and regions, as well as the business community throughout the United States.

The US Welcome Pavilion is a private endeavor that is not sponsored or endorsed by, or affiliated with, the U. S. Olympic Committee, USA House, The IOC, RIO 2016 or the Olympic Games.
