Our goal is to identify shared economic opportunities and strengthen collaboration amongst our businesses, economic development professionals, and leaders.
This year’s theme, Our Elemental Economy, evaluates the unique yet fundamental ways our environment shapes our region’s economy.
Day 1 will center on the foundational components unique to our Redwood Coast Region. From solidarity economics to investment and community development, keynote speakers will share ideas about how we can build a more resilient and equitable economy. Focused breakout sessions provide ample opportunity to collaborate and connect.
Day 2 will touch on the economic development opportunities and challenges faced by our region. and how they’re connected to and impacted by the four elements: earth, wind, water, and fire. Engage in interactive discussions, breakout sessions, and industry-focused presentations from inspiring Redwood Coast leaders.
The summit offers a unique opportunity to gather, network, and connect under one roof to help co-create a thriving economic future for our region.
