The Economic Development Coalition of Southwest California will hold its first State of the Region—Valley of Innovation on April 27, 2017. This important business and industry conference will be held at the Lake Elsinore Diamond.
This year the EDC will introduce the completely re-branded “Valley of Innovation” and discuss the advancements the region has made in business partnerships, the communities, culture, commerce and in making it easier for businesses to locate in here. The EDC’s interests cover the cities of Temecula, Murrieta, Wildomar, Lake Elsinore, Menifee and the portions of the county of Riverside.
When asked why anyone should attend this event, Doug McAllister, the Coalition’s Executive Director said, “The purpose of this initiative is to provide a defensible answer to the question: ‘Why is our region the best region in California in which to do business?’
At SOAR’s Phase One in April we are going to familiarize ourselves with what is available in this area so we can introduce our region to the world in October. In April, we will show how our region is coalescing, making us the best place in California from which to access the world’s 6th largest economy.”
The 2017 State of The Region: Valley of Innovation Conference is being held on April 27, from 11:00 to 1:30 at The Diamond Club, located at the Lake Elsinore Stadium.
The event will feature a presentation from Mr. McAllister addressing the question of how to maximize opportunities and meet the challenges of a region that is expected to add four million people over the next ten years. This highly anticipated event brings together state and local elected officials, CEOs, business and civic leaders, transportation and environmental stakeholders, local government staff and others.
Also premiering at the event is the 2017 SOAR Awards for Innovation, recognizing exemplary businesses and government innovation in the region. To attend and learn why our region can legitimately claim to be the future of California, register today at www.edcswca.com. Please see the website to apply for one of the Innovation Awards.
