The Rust Belt Revitalization Economic Summit is an opportunity to collaboratively develop and activate a wide array of strategically innovative economic growth concepts for the eastern Ohio & western PA region – midway between Pittsburgh and Cleveland in the heart of the rust belt. This summit will also help empower our area (which encompasses the Youngstown-Warren, Ohio area and Lawrence and Mercer counties in Pa) to envision itself more cohesively, collaboratively and dynamically as we move forward together - working to develop and create our own definition of a successful future for our region.
