National Trust Main Streets Conference March 1-4, 2009 Chicago, IL

National Trust for Historic Preservation

Chicago, birthplace of "deep dish" pizza, Wrigley's gum, and skyscrapers, is also the candy capitol of the world and home to the largest public library, indoor aquarium and Tiffany stained glass dome. It's also the hometown of Jerry Springer, Harrison Ford, Bill Murray, Oprah, and, oh yeah, the President-elect of the United States. They will all be in good company when Main Streeters come to the Windy City in March.

The 2009 Main Streets Conference offers valuable learning and networking opportunities that will help you and your local businesses work smarter and more efficiently. With 60+ sessions and technology tutorials, 19 mobile workshops, 60+ vendors in the Main Street Expo and unparalleled networking opportunities, this conference is an event you can't afford to miss.

But what about the economy? How can the Chicago Conference help your downtown? The 2009 Main Streets Conference will be like none of our previous gatherings. Not only will it offer perennial favorites and advanced topics in all areas, this year's conference will help you address the crucial economic conditions your program and businesses face through exciting and emerging new strategies and tools that are making a difference. That's what "becoming Main Street 2.0" is all about.

Can technology improve your fund-raising response rate? Do social media really build new leaders? Can software solutions make a difference to the bottom line of your businesses or your organization? The answer is "YES," and you'll have unprecedented access to field leaders and technology experts to build your own solutions!
