2020 UEDA SUMMIT THEME

Redesigning the Future Amidst Dynamic Change: A Virtual Economic Accelerator Summit

 

Right Now, Our Work is More Important Than Ever

As a national conference supporting economic development experts from across the U.S. and Canada, the UEDA Summit attracts more than 250 C-level and director-level professionals from universities, communities, and for-profit businesses. The Summit provides an ideal venue for exposure to top-level economic development practitioners from across North America and beyond. UEDA sponsors, supporters, and exhibitors are critical to the success of the Summit. Sponsorship and supporter investment brings high-profile attention and recognition to each sponsor organization. A variety of sponsorship levels and events are now being offered with limited availability. Securing these opportunities early will gain your organization increased exposure on registration brochures, the UEDA website, and in our regular Summit communications. We encourage and appreciate your support!

 All sponsorship and exhibition opportunities can be packaged into custom branding solutions to meet your organization’s needs. Opportunities can be packaged with year-round UEDA sponsorship and advertising that creates a full-service plan for the greatest impact with your target audience.
