ED411 has become a not-to-be missed annual Columbus Region economic development event.  Last year’s record setting attendance of over 700 Columbus Region stakeholders speaks to the event’s popularity.    Stakeholders include economic developers, elected boards, commissions, local government and school board officials, planning organizations and local government staff.

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

To learn more about being considered for a speaking role, visit ED411 or contact Haley Young, HY@columbusregion.com   The 2019 ED411 Planning Committee will review your submission and determine if the topic and your qualifications are fitting for a breakout session at the 2019 ED411 event.

Please note in order to keep registration fees to a minimum, ED411 does not pay speaker honorariums, speaker expenses or conference registration fees.

Additionally, completion of this form does not commit you to an ED411 speaking role. Selected speakers will receive an official invitation and confirmation from the 2019 ED 411 Planning Committee Chair, Eric Phillips.
