Right Now, Our Work is More Important Than Ever

As a national conference supporting economic development experts, the UEDA Annual Summit attracts more than 200 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.

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!
