Economic Development Summit - Chicago, IL - June 18-19th

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

 


 What is the Summit?

Join industry peers and experts at Illinois' premier economic development networking and educational event, this year on Chicago's beautiful Magnificent Mile on June 18-19, 2020.  For those who may be in town the night prior, we will be hosting a networking nightcap at the St. Jane on the evening of the 17th.

This year we are working Together Towards Tomorrow and gather all of our industry partners to discuss and coordinate strategies with our regional, state, and international partners.  We will look at the impact and top questions regarding Illinois' new cannabis industry, marketing trends, talent attraction, and business retention.  Sit with leading voices in foreign markets to discuss doing business with Japan and other ways to improve foreign direct investment in your communities. 

We look forward to meeting you at the Summit Chicago for the 2020 Economic Development Summit, brought to you by the Illinois Economic Development Association. We can't wait to see you there!
