Economic Development in Challenging Times: Charting a Path Forward

The TEDC's 2020 Annual Conference is October 5-9, 2020. We are going virtual with this year's annual conference. The program will be delivered over a five-day period and we will be utilizing a very interactive virtual event platform to enhance your conference experience. By stretching out the two and one-half day program to five days, the conference schedule will have shorter days and more breaks.

We have a great lineup of speakers, a program that will be include many panel discussions and interactive discussion forums, as well as exhibits, award recognition and networking opportunities. You don't want to miss this year's conference program and take advantage of hearing from leading economic development experts and peers. 

The program includes numerous keynote presentations, breakout sessions, panel discussions and discussion forums on economic development. This year's program includes five Peer Group Roundtables. Recipients of the TEDC's 2020 Community Economic Development Award and TEDC's 2020 Workforce Excellence Award will be recognized during the conference. 

The conference registration fee has been discounted 25 percent to make attendance more cost-effective. We also have a Group Rate for groups of 5 or more. Please contact Abi abi@texasedc.org for more information on the Group Rate.

This year's conference theme is Economic Development in Challenging Times: Charting a Path Forward. The program includes presentations on very important issues that economic developers are facing and will offer insight and direction on how to deal with those challenges and ways to move forward in a positive direction.


The program includes keynote presentations, breakout sessions, panel discussions and topical discussion forums, as well as, five Peer Group Roundtables.


The five-day schedule is designed for a more user-friendly, virtual experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in as many sessions as they would like and will be able to be a part of interactive discussions with speakers and peers. There are multiple breaks in each day of the program to give attendees to have one-on-one or group virtual meetings with each other and exhibitors.
