Event description

Description

The Texas Tribune is pleased to present its "Future of" series, exploring the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for Texas' government, business and civic communities.

Join us as we travel to Midland for a day-long series of conversations on the future of the Texas economy and how to keep the good thing we have going, going. We’ll sit down with legislators, statewide electeds, industry executives, labor leaders, and all manner of innovators and disruptors to discuss, among other hot topics, the best strategies for creating jobs and opportunity for all, building a next-gen workforce, leveraging the promise of technology, attracting business, enabling entrepreneurship, diversifying our industry mix, properly calibrating regulatory tweaks and consumer protections, and assessing the cost and value of investing in infrastructure — social and physical — at a time of precipitous population growth.

The full schedule and panelists for this event will be announced in the coming weeks.
