ECONOMIC SUMMIT REPORT
October 7 SVED held its 4th Annual Economic Summit at Sun Valley Resort's Limelight Room. Almost 250 registrants from Business, Government, Non-Profits and Education got inspired by keynote speaker Gordon Jones, founder of BSU's new College of Innovation and Design.
Next came panel discussions and Q&A with local experts:
Innovation In Our Business Start-Up Ecosystem
Cultural and Recreational Tourism
Obstacles and Opportunities in Land Use
Growth and Aspirations
The panel power points are available HERE
Thank you again to our volunteers, panelists, sponsors, and attendees for making this event a success.
The 5th Annual Economic Summit is planned for October 5, Wednesday, 2016.
KETCHUM HAS A NEW MUCH NEEDED EVENT CENTER
Deb Burns and Jeni Riley are the new managerial team at the Ketchum Conference Event Center in the mall behind TopNotch on Sun Valley Road.
Bringing event goers to a location in the heart of Ketchum will be great for local businesses as it builds vibrancy downtown.
You can help get this venture started by sending referral ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.ketchumeventcenter.com.
BRING A BUSINESS TO BLAINE
We have a lot of work to do if we are going to replace the jobs that moved out of the valley when Eye Safety Systems, SCOTT, and SMITH matured here, became very successful and were acquired by larger companies with different global strategies.
One of our options is to attract small businesses here, who, like ESS, SCOTT, and SMITH, can grow here and utilize former employees. With the growth of our air service and more prevalent telecommuting technologies we are a good fit for many businesses. We need to spread the word that we are open for business!
