ED411, presented by The MidOhio Development Exchange (MODE) and One Columbus (formerly Columbus 2020), will take place on December 6, 2019.  For the first year ever, the planning committee is calling for presentation proposals.

Have a great topic fitting into one or more of the categories below? We’d love to hear from you.  Single or multi-person presentations will be considered.  Sessions will be 60-minutes including 15 minutes of Q&A.

  • Supporting existing business growth

  • Entrepreneurship and high-growth firm acceleration
  • Community preparedness
  • Global trade and investment stimulation
  • Economic development marketing and promotion
