Economic development experts, site selectors, government officials, power distributors, tourism agencies, and real estate professionals are gathering at the 2013 National Rural Economic Developers Association's annual conference to focus on transforming the economic climate of rural America.
Austin, TX -- Golden Shovel Agency, a leader in combining web technologies and design expertise to promote rural development, is proud to be a platinum sponsor and participant at the National Rural Economic Developers Association (NREDA) 2013 annual conference in Austin, TX. This year's conference is held July 17-19 at the Driskill Hotel and is focused on "Poised for Growth: Transforming Rural America."
The NREDA is a who's who in economic development and their annual conference is a think tank geared toward practical solutions to current rural economy concerns. For 25 years, the NREDA has been focused on coordination of resources to provide rural areas a greater presence to corporate America.
Attending from Golden Shovel Agency are John Marshall, Vice President of Sales, and Aaron Brossoit, Vice President of Business Development for Golden Shovel and NREDA communications committee member.
John Marshall considers every NREDA conference extremely informational and is "looking forward to a great lineup of speakers from the economic development profession."
This year's three day conference will allow participants to hear from a cross-sector of industry, government, education, and non-profit representatives who are crucial to economic development. Specific discussions will include global impacts on rural America, American agriculture and its place in the global economy, workforce housing, risk management for entrepreneurs, tourism opportunities, and more. Participants will also be able to break-out and strategize how working together can benefit rural America.
According to Brossoit, the "NREDA always puts on a top notch economic development conference. The speakers are high quality and the attendees tend to be proponents of collaboration and sharing resources. Those are professionals we want to network with." Golden Shovel looks forward to utilizing this opportunity by both promoting clients and exchanging ideas with other agencies devoted to economic development.
