Mid-America EDC is going virtual for the 2020 Mid-America Competitiveness Conference & Site Selector Forum!  The virtual conference will be presented using the innovative Whova virtual conference platform - available digitally on a computer or mobile device near you!

While we all wish we could be together live and in-person, the conference committee is pleased to present this economical, comprehensive virtual option that we are sure will be a great educational opportunity to assist you in navigating economic development in today’s environment!

The virtual conference agenda is planned to accommodate the various time zones in the Mid-America EDC region, while also allowing time for attendees to visit our virtual exhibitors and connect with sponsors, presenters, and other attendees through the Whova platform.  Please note that ALL sessions will be recorded and available on-demand in the Whova platform after each session if you register but are unable to attend a session live. 

We are thrilled to have EIGHT site consultants joining us for three rounds of small group discussions on targeted, relevant topics this year!  And, be sure to grab a drink and a snack and join us for the “I Beat COVID Happy Hour” the evening of December 2nd.  This virtual networking/happy hour session will be interactive, while we hear your inspiring stories from this year!  Sign up with your registration to tell your uplifting story for your chance to win prizes!

We look forward to “seeing” you in December!
