DENVER – Adams County Economic Development (ACED) is gearing up for its second-annual Site Selection Summit focused on promoting the business advantages of Adams County, Colorado. The three-day summit takes place July 17-19, 2018 and will bring five national site selection consultants to the area for industry tours and panel discussions with business and economic development leaders.
The visiting consultants—experts who represent Fortune 500 companies in their relocation and expansion efforts—also specialize in Adams County’s expanding industries, including aerospace, aviation, bio/life sciences, energy, and manufacturing.
The business community is invited to attend Ascent: Our Competitive Edge, a breakfast taking place Thursday, July 19 at Wedgewood at The Brittany Hill in Thornton. The invited site selectors will share their perceptions of Adams County’s strengths and its competitiveness for future company relocations and expansions. Individual seats ($50) and tables of 10 ($500) can be reserved online at www.bit.ly/AdamsAscent18.
