OEDA 360 Slated for March 7, 2018
Mark your calendars to attend OEDA 360 on March 7, 2018! The event will be held at the Renaissance Downtown Columbus Hotel.
One of OEDA’s newest programs, OEDA 360 brings together the entire economic development community to give you a comprehensive look at the state of economic development in Ohio. OEDA 360 brings together the economic developers on the front lines, all the state agencies and JobsOhio to keep you current on current issues and emerging trends.

OEDA 360 provides a unique opportunity to interface with state agency, JobsOhio and REDO leadership and program managers and ask questions about critical state economic development programs and issues. The legislative update covers all of the legislation and issues impacting local economic development as well as how the political landscape may impact economic development policy.
