With an emphasis on dynamic networking opportunities, each event combines essential business tips with opportunities to share your own story with fellow business owners and across industries, along with breakout deep dive roundtable discussions on diverse topics with City Officials, members of the City Council and Business & Economic Development Advisory Group.

This year's keynote speaker Jodi Coplan, discussed "The Future of Work." City officials provided an update on the City’s business development initiatives, and attendees provided valuable feedback to help improve business processes.
