Transformation, Innovation, Reinvention: Creating Tomorrow’s Economy Today

By envisioning a better community you can transform it. Through innovation you can re-invent it. By building on existing strengths, you will revitalize it. Against a backdrop of heightened risk awareness and uncertainty, economic development practitioners must help transform their regions into locations where policies and programs mitigate risk and add certainty to the business climate.
The International Economic Development Council's 2013 Annual Conference, October 6-9, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, will address obstacles facing economic developers, and existing trends in our dynamic economy. With the right tools, economic developers everywhere can create a vision for the future, stimulate consensus, and prepare their communities for 21st century success.
As the world's 5th largest economy, the 200-mile area centered on Philadelphia accounts for 18% of the U.S. population, and is home to more than 120 of the Fortune 500.Experience the area's transformation from a manufacturing based economy into a learning region that boasts an array of key strengths. Through a program of top speakers, cutting-edge topics, and educational tours, conference attendees will not only see the region's innovative energy, but leave with fresh strategies and tools to take their organizations to the next level.
