IEDC 2006 Economic Development Summit

International Economic Development Council (IEDC)

Co-sponsored by IEDC and various national, regional and state economic development associations, the 2006 Economic Development Summit will be the largest economic development legislative event of the year. This year, the Summit will take place at the JW Marriott Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue in the heart of Washington, DC.

The Summit spotlights federal policy, programs and regulations impacting economic development operations nationwide.
