2021 OEDA 360

Jan 31, 2021 | Uncategorized

OEDA leadership has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 OEDA 360 event, due to gathering restrictions related to the current pandemic.

 

OEDA 360 is designed to provide attendees with a comprehensive view of the state of economic development in Ohio, identify new resources for successful projects, and interact with peers and thought leaders from around the state. OEDA 360 brings together the top minds in economic development and state leaders for a day of insight, information, resource identification and connections. And, OEDA 360 provides unique opportunity to interface with agency leadership and program managers and ask questions about critical state economic development issues and key programs. OEDA 360 is a “can’t be missed” event for economic developers, elected officials and policy makers.
