More than 1,000 business, community and government leaders are expected to gather for San Bernardino County’s annual Regional Business Summit and State of the County on Tuesday February 12th.
This year’s event theme, “Innovate. Transform. Grow.,” was selected in recognition of the county’s economic strength, business growth and innovative ideas designed to further transform the region.
An integral part of the region’s projected progress in these areas will be rooted in the county’s recently launched Vision2Succeed campaign—an initiative focused on not only preparing county’s residents for jobs in today’s market but also to build the capabilities desired for the kinds of jobs county officials would like to attract to the region.
This year’s event will feature a message from Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman, interviews with Jason Feifer, Editor-in-Chief, Entrepreneur magazine along with leaders from San Bernardino County’s top industries and businesses such as Garner Holt Productions, General Atomic, China Airlines, Federal Express UPS, NUUO, and Lennar Homes.
“The County continues to lead the state and nation in job and population growth. At a time when business and residents are being priced out of coastal markets, we continue to be a quality choice for business expansion and for a quality lifestyle,” Chairman Hagman said. “That’s why I encourage businesses to make plans now to be part of this event. We will share information to encourage business growth as well as provide a forum for valuable engagement with regional leaders. Bottom line, this event is about business expansion and job creation.”
The event will be held at the Citizens Business Bank Arena located at 4000 Ontario Center in Ontario. Sponsorship opportunities for greater business exposure are still available.
