Consultants Forum

With so much positive feedback from the more than 400 professionals who have joined us the past eight years, the Women in Economic Development Forum will return to the Sofitel Magnificent Mile in Chicago this Fall. The event will provide attendees the opportunity to hear from and network with some of the most influential and active women site consultants, industry experts and economic developers while gaining insight into current site selection trends and business attraction strategies.

The forum will focus on the growing importance in the leadership roles women are bringing to the industry, and is intended to encourage and inspire both professional and personal growth. Speaker presentations will be accompanied by panels, roundtable discussions and networking breaks, receptions and meals.


The Forum opens Sunday with an early evening Networking Reception and Dinner. The Monday-Tuesday program is designed to focus on those subjects and issues that will help you create a more effective business attraction & retention strategy. Each day's program includes a networking breakfast and lunch and a series of networking breaks, where you have the opportunity to meet and talk with speakers and colleagues.
