Consultants Forum 13
The 13th Consultants Forum will be held May 30-June 1, 2012 at the 5 star Montelucia Hotel, Paradise Valley, AZ (Scottsdale). Organized by Area Development Magazine, The Consultants Forums are considered the industry's premier conferences to attend and a "must" event for serious ED practitioners.

This Forum will be the most important and timely program in 2012 you can attend. Centered on the theme of "Recession, Recovery & RenewalNew Strategies for Successful Economic Development" and led by invited speakers from among today's most active site consultants and business advisors the Forum will address the leading issues, strategies and best practices necessary for succeeding as the economy continues to rebound.

The Forum begins with a full evening Reception and Dinner followed by an intense day and a half program of sessions, panels and round table discussions designed to focus on those subjects, sectors and issues that will contribute most to the economic recovery. The daily program also includes valuable networking breaks, receptions and meals where you can have the opportunity to meet and talk with speakers and colleagues. Our second evening will take all participants for an enjoyable evening away from the hotel to Old Town Scottsdale for a networking reception and dinner and time to visit.

Known for its limited seat boutique style, the Consultant's Forum offers an all business and no nonsense program, engaging speakers, an excellent networking environment and a schedule that fills your time productively.

The Consultants Forum program is designed to provide ED professionals at all levels with a valuable insider's view of how today's revived and changed economy will affect your program now and in the months ahead.

Each Consultants Forum has sold out since the first in 2006 and we expect our second Scottsdale area Forum (the last was 2008) will again draw an early "sell out" registration. Seating is limited to 100 delegates.

Early Bird Registration is available only to the first 50 registrants and ends March 23 with payment due by March 30.
