Additional sessions include an update on the national, state and regional economies; Arizona’s competitiveness in site selection and incentives; renewable energies, and more.
The conference is a partnership between the Arizona Department of Commerce and the Arizona Association for Economic Development. Registration will begin in June, and updates will be posted at the Department of Commerce’s website.
