Trump will give the keynote at the opening day dinner on June 1 in Greensboro.
"Donald Trump is an entrepreneurial icon. He is someone who has invested time and money into making North Carolina a better place to live and work. At a time when North Carolinians, just like the rest of the country, are wondering how to get our economy going again, I can think of nobody more qualified to speak about entrepreneurship and job creation than Donald Trump," said NCGOP Chairman Robin Hayes. "As a dedicated conservative, successful businessman, and inspiration to many, Donald Trump will provide our convention with a unique energy and excitement."
The dinner will be held at the Koury Convention Center.
