The 6th Annual Women in Economic Development 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. The Forum's unique program is designed to allow you to network with some of the most influential women currently working in the industry while gaining insight into current site selection trends and best practices.
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 affective ED strategy. Each day's program includes a networking breakfast and lunch and a series of valuable networking breaks, where you have the opportunity to meet and talk with speakers and colleagues.
For the third year in a row the Forum's Monday Evening Networking Reception will be held in The Signature Room at the 95th Floor of the famed John Hancock Building. In addition to our attendees and Forum Speakers we will be joined by Chicago real estate brokers, developers and site consultants. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served while taking in the breath taking views of the Chicago city skyline.
Following Tuesday's Closing Lunch, you are ready to leave for home or office.
The Forum has a limited number of hotel rooms available at the conference rate of $239 for Sunday and Monday nights. For those wishing to add stays for Saturday, Tuesday and/or Wednesday nights there are limited rooms available at the conference rate. Due to the limited number of rooms available hotel reservations will only be available after receipt of your paid Forum registration.
