Each year, the Guild holds its marquee Annual Conference event with over 50 global Guild members in attendance. The cornerstone of the SSG Annual Conference is knowledge sharing, an interactive exchange of ideas and networking between the Guild members and economic developers and investment promotion professionals from around the world. Guild members plan all conference content, including bringing in expert outside speakers, and also serve on panels and participate in breakout sessions with conference attendees for the purpose of sharing insights and fostering discussion.
The Guild’s Annual Conference provides multiple opportunities for networking between attendees and among Guild members and attendees.
Also at the Annual Conference, the Guild’s awards, Projects with a Purpose and Community Innovation: Building a Better Business Climate are presented to outstanding EDOs who have gone above and beyond in their work. For more information on the Guild awards, click here.
