The Richmond Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the City of Richmond and the Council of Industries proudly presents the 3rd Annual Economic Summit. Join us on Wednesday, September 19, 2012, from 9:30am to 5pm. “Discover Richmond” at this year’s summit, featuring two mobile workshops that will take you around the city, bringing attention to business opportunities, development plans, community success and growth, historic value and cultural trends that shape our local economy today.
Mobile Workshop Tour #1
Board a comfortable bus for a tour of the Richmond’s neighborhoods, historical landmarks, retail opportunities in central Richmond and Hilltop, visit new school sites, nonprofit projects and more. Learn about Richmond’s community leaders, their issues and where and why they have developed influence in the City.
Mobile Workshop Tour #2
On this comfortable bus tour, you will explore Richmond’s larger industrial opportunities, development, importing and exporting, and learn about the businesses that are currently located in Richmond. Visit the site of the LBNL project. Learn about economic forecasts and opportunities relative to the Lab. In addition, visit businesses around the shoreline and gain insight into the trends that will shape activity in the next decade.
Both of these mobile workshops will be offered during the morning and afternoon. These sessions are designed for the convenience of those attending and will be flexible to ensure the best possible attendance outcome. Take both tours, or just one… its up to you. A catered box lunch will be provided as we gather to hear City Manager Bill Lindsay describe the economic forecast for the City of Richmond.
The summit will conclude with a Hornblower boat cruise along the shoreline hosted by the Council of Industries. The shoreline cruise highlights the business of the port and its accompanying infrastructure and provides an opportunity to network with business leaders and city officials, while enjoying refreshments and the unique view of Richmond and its maritime assets.
