The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development is bringing its show back to the nation's capital next month.

The second Reservation Economic Summit DC takes place June 15-18 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. Hundreds of tribal leaders, Indian entrepreneurs and corporate executives -- along with federal, state and local officials -- will gather to promote and explore economic opportunities in Indian Country.

"RES DC promises to be another successful economic summit put on by the National Center – and one that will continue our mission of advancing business for Indian Country,” Gary Davis, the president and CEO of NCAIED, said in a press release. “Last year, we laid a strong foundation with our first RES DC, and we look forward to continuing that progress in 2015. I encourage our American Indian enterprises and entrepreneurs, as well as those interested in doing business in Indian Country, to come to our nation’s capital for RES DC.”

This year's event includes a "New Day Now" rally at the U.S. Capitol on June 16. The Senate Indian Affairs Committee will host two breakout sessions after the rally, according to the press release.
