Business Without Boundaries: A regional look at cutting-edge business trends, our uniquely diverse industries, and the Seattle region’s emergence as a global center
Our regional economy has shifted from being driven by industry clusters in isolation to one cluster informing another—big data and analytics impacting health sciences; clean technology impacting construction; tech impacting aerospace and maritime—at these intersections lies our competitive advantage. At EFC45, we will explore the economic ecosystem in the greater Seattle region that promotes our uniquely diverse economy while showcasing examples of reinvention and collaboration across industries. As the region experiences unprecedented rates of growth, we must continually navigate and adapt to an ever-changing and globally competitive economic landscape.
At EFC45, you will gain valuable insight on how our region can not only adapt to but capitalize on the current climate of change and continue to emerge as a vibrant global center that promotes jobs and economic prosperity for all. Don’t miss your chance to join the conversation, learn what lies ahead for the region with forecasts from nationally recognized experts and network with other Northwest community and business leaders. For 45 years, the Economic Development Council of Seattle & King County’s (EDC) annual Economic Forecast Conference, the largest forecast conference in the region, has helped business and community leaders translate economic trends into competitive intelligence to successfully plan for the future.
