IEDC Conferences


In a global economy, you never know where the next opportunity to advance your career or community will come from. We give you the chance to form and foster relationships with economic developers from around the world – and the next county over.

Our technical and annual conferences will not only connect you with others who share your goals and experiences, but keep you in the forefront of the profession by providing access to and insights from community leaders, industry experts, and federal policy makers. IEDC offers the following four conferences every year:

 


February 9-11, 2020 | Tampa, FL

IEDC’s Leadership Summit is a unique gathering of senior-level and CEcD-certified economic developers. Experience peer networking and active discussions on the latest issues affecting economic development leaders. The 2020 IEDC Leadership Summit in Tampa, Florida will engage leaders with new strategies and inspiration for creating lasting and measurable social impact. By highlighting community examples within the conference programming along with the latest thinking from subject matter experts, this Summit will help us reshape the core values and DNA of economic development practice going forward.

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