I must say that it exceeded my expectations and your speakers were great.
Nevada Governor’s Office for Econ. Dev.

Sessions all were valuable. “Sector focused” presentations very valuable.

Liked the new format of the short, fast presentations. I liked the varied topics outside the usual traditional economic development verticals.

Overall content very relevant to our work.
Georgia DED

Good all-around event – great speakers, excellent venue and good opportunity to build relationships.

The level of expertise and knowledge of the presenters are excellent. The topics cover key issues facing economic developers today with insight and thought provoking discussions about future trends.

Excellent speakers!

All speakers did a great job – worth the trip.

Always an excellent conference! “Met expectations” because you’ve set the bar high and continue to meet it every time. Love, love, love new 30 min. talk format!

I always walk away with information I can use back home. Always first rate sessions.

Another strong Forum program.

Good range of pertinent topics overall.

These are top notch events. I attended the (Atlanta) Forum to reconnect with a few consultants and make some new friends. It worked! I walked away with a genuine first-class project.
Taylor Economic Development Corporation (TX)

Our staff has worked diligently for almost a year on this Sierra Pacific Brewery project – (we) learned about this opportunity while attending the Renewable Energy site-consultant conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The Consultants Forum Supports Community Plates

Community PlatesFounded in January 2011, Community Plates is committed to ending American food-insecurity through direct-transfer food rescue. Established as a 501(c)3 non-profit food-rescue platform, Community Plates is focused on transferring healthy, usable foods to where it can help feed those in need. This volunteer-driven, technology fueled process coordinates with restaurants, grocers, bakeries, caterers and other food-service organizations who have foods destined to be thrown away and delivers the food to soup-kitchens, food-pantries and other hunger relief organizations who serve food-insecure individuals and families.

The Consultants Forum is pleased to support this relief service by providing all the unused food from our events to Community Plates. We will continue to support Community Plates at locations of all future Consultants Forum events.
