Be In New York City September 16-20 For IEDC's Annual Conference

International Economic Development Council

To be successful in today's rapidly changing global economy, communities must have lightning fast reflexes and the ability to communicate and collaborate across town, across the country and around the world. Like never before, the currency of economic growth is ideas. To tap into the new growth sectors and remain competitive, our cities and towns require a new level of creativity and innovation.

IEDC and the New York Host Committee recognize the implications of this new, flat world and are creating a world class economic development event. The Annual Conference agenda will present three days of in-depth analysis in five major tracks:

The Cutting Edge of Economic Development: Building Community Through Taking Risks
Attracting, Training and Retaining a Skilled Workforce to Compete in the Creative Economy
The Nuts and Bolts of Economic Development: Tools for Attracting New Investment and Building Strong Communities
High-Impact Real Estate Financing
Leveraging Urban, Suburban and Rural Assets for Sustained Economic Growth

The IEDC Annual Conference is the premier economic development event of the year. It brings together more than 1,500 leaders in business, government, and academics to examine current economic development policy issues and debate solutions. Together they will share best practices, explore new strategies and listen to innovative leaders and the approaches they have taken to strengthen communities, build businesses and foster economic opportunity.

It is an intensive learning and networking experience for participants, offering a wide range of dynamic choices, including over 50 plenary, concurrent, and seminar sessions, educational tours and outstanding keynote speakers.
