“Spotlight: Jobs” is theme for MBEP’s 3rd annual Regional Economic Summit
March 2, 2017 — Marina, CA
The Monterey Bay Economic Partnership (MBEP) is hosting its third Annual Regional Economic Summit at the Cocoanut Grove in Santa Cruz on May 4, 2017.
The theme of this year’s Summit is “Spotlight: Jobs”. The keynote speaker is Dr. Chris Thornberg, Founding Partner at Beacon Economics, who will provide insights into local, state and national economic trends. The morning session will consist of two panels that will put a spotlight on jobs as the backbone of our economy: Who is producing high-quality jobs in the region, and how do we create more of them? How can we work together to move people into higher wage jobs? These questions and more will be explored through engaging panel discussions and audience engagement.
Roundtable Discussions. After lunch participants will join a Roundtable Discussion of their choosing to delve more deeply into topics related to the morning’s panels. These discussions will be facilitated by subject matter experts in order to brainstorm solutions.
Marketplace. During the morning registration, breaks and the closing wine reception, attendees can visit the Marketplace, where community organizations will be sharing projects aligned with MBEP’s mission.
Reception with Monterey Bay Winemakers. At the close of the event, attendees will be treated to a wine-tasting reception with regionally crafted wines. Martinelli’s will also provide nonalcoholic sparkling cider.
Tickets and Sponsors. Due to limited seating, this event will sell out in advance. Early Bird pricing ends on March 31, 2017. Sponsorships are available. For registration and sponsorship information, please visit our webpage. Agenda coming soon.
