2021 Boulder Economic Summit
The public health crisis continues to directly impact our local economy. As we all adapt to new ways of delivering products / services, working, learning and socializing, both challenges and opportunities within our economy have become more visible. Join us for our annual event to hear from local business and civic leaders on how Boulder will take these lessons, adapt to the long-term impacts and forge a path towards both a strong and inclusive economic recovery.
The program will include both in-person and online options through the end of 2021 to meet the comfort levels of everyone due to current COVID-19 conditions. Registration to the event enables you to choose which option works best for you during the opening keynote session, and then spreads out the content breakouts into online solutions-based forums in both November and December.
