Regional conference hopes to increase international engagement

September 30, 2013 by  

The Regional Leadership Conference is taking place for three days next month, and is a joint presentation of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and the Global Cities Initiative. The theme of this year’s session is ‘Global Cities: Increasing International Engagement and Global Competitiveness’.

Several high profile speakers are expected at the conference, including Governor Jay Inslee, Brad Smith of Microsoft, and Jamie Dimon from JPMorgan Chase. Guests will take part in breakout sessions with topics such as ‘How do we envision our global competitiveness?’ and ‘What are the next steps toward increasing our global competitiveness?’. The Sen. Scott White Regional Leadership Award will be presented by Alison Carl White of Within Reach.

Special events will include an opening reception, followed by an opening dinner and a lunch with former Washington governor Christine Gregoire. Guests will also meet for breakfast buffets, lunch, dinners, and nightly receptions.

It is highly likely that Seattle printing companies have been asked to print and provide the printed materials that all conference attendees will receive. This would probably include brochures, flyers, and booklets.

The Regional Leadership Conference will take place at the Suncadia Lodge from October 16 to 18. Fees are $1,350 until October 7 and $1,450 after, and prices include hotel accommodations, meals, and all conference materials.

The opening reception will take place on October 16, beginning at 5:00 pm, while the lunch with Christine Gregoire will be held on October 17 from 12:30 pm until 2:00 pm. To learn more about the conference contact Larry Pike at 206-389-7215.
