EDCO has held an annual conference since its start-up in 1957.

Each year, members and other engaged in profession gather in early February to exchange information and learn from leading edge presentations that are transferrable to their respective communities. Part of the event includes a showcase that offers participants to learn about new programming and services that will assist in day-to-day operations and funding of special projects.

The 61st Annual EDCO Conference and Showcase — Mission Possible: Agents of Change — will take place at the Sheraton Centre Hotel, February 5-7 2018.

Escape from the office and go undercover in a place where you can imagine, create and discuss issues facing economic developers with some of the most imaginative and strategic minds in the industry. This year’s Conference theme, Mission Possible: Agents of Change, challenges economic developers to look past the status quo and declassify new, inventive ways to take action in an ever-changing landscape.

You told us what your hot topics are and we’ve listened. The EDCO Conference program will reflect these topics in keynote presentations by distinguished experts, highly practical and interactive workshops and round tables, and a new and exciting iPoliticsLIVE journalism event. We’ve also incorporated more time for you to network with your peers!

Get ready to be an Agent of Change for your community!
