Each year, AICGS honors an international figure who reinforces the ties between Germany and the United States. The event highlights the critical role that the German-American partnership plays in transatlantic relations. This esteemed award recognizes the achievements of business pioneers and government leaders who have profoundly shaped the partnership between Germany and the U.S.

The dinner was preceeded by the third AICGS Annual Symposium entitled “ ‘A World in Flux’: German-American Relations and a Changing Global Order.” Taking place at the Deutsche Bank office of 60 Wall Street, the Symposium featured three panels of high-level speakers.
