Women in Economic Development

We return to Chicago’s outstanding Sofitel Water Tower Hotel, site of the first Women in Economic Development Forum in 2010, to host the third Forum on October 21-23, 2012. We invite you to be part of an outstanding program of speakers featuring women from among major site location consulting firms, corporate real estate and economic development who will be invited to speak about corporate site selection on topics from best practices to advancement as an ED women professional, roundtable sessions and peer networking at this informative B2B conference event.

Organized by Area Development magazine’s Consultant's Forum group this Forum is built on the same reputation for a no-nonsense, insightful and strong program where you’ll learn about the latest deciding factors in the site selection process from the best "minds" in site consulting, corporate RE and economic development. As with all Forum events this includes a distinct venue, hospitality and first class hotel to match the quality of the outstanding program.

Chicago’s European style Sofitel - one of the city’s finest hotels -will again serve as the site for the second Forum.

To preserve the boutique nature of this event and a low ratio of speakers to delegates the Women’s Forum is limited to 100 ED professionals. Seats are reserved on a first come basis. Hotel rooms are limited and available upon registration. Room rates are $219 per night.

Contact for more information.
