This year’s conference theme is Economic Development: Back to Basics. We will address the economic impact and future climate of a few key industries that affect Colorado’s economy, planning for the industry’s shifting dynamics, and how community strategic planning is critical to retaining and growing a successful economy. Tuesday’s topics and breakout sessions, will culminate in a half-day session on Wednesday, presented by Avalanche Consulting. They will share with us a national perspective on economic development trends. We will be led through a series of discussions on modern day economic strategies, innovative approaches to reporting progress to stakeholders, and breakout sessions on marketing strategies, talent attraction, and how to have a more effective business retention and expansion program.
There is something for everyone in this year’s conference. Those in attendance; cities across the state, businesses and corporations, non-profit organizations, government agencies, universities and more.
