2015 Leadership Summit

Gateways to Economic Competitiveness
January 25-27 | Palm Beach County, FL

The 2015 IEDC Leadership Summit brings together leaders from around the world to explore the role and responsibility of economic developers and organizations in channeling new ideas, markets, and products into their "gateways" to increase local, regional, national and global economic growth in today's competitive marketplace.

The Summit will highlight the South Florida region's physical and intellectual infrastructure. Attendees will see examples of what is happening at the local level and how these successes can be replicated in their communities. Whether it's the physical infrastructure of shipping ports, airports, highways, and rail services, or the intellectual infrastructure of universities and research facilities, Palm Beach County will show you what it takes to maintain a competitive edge in today's world.

Attendance is limited to senior managers of economic development organizations and Certified Economic Developers (CEcDs).
