Over 300 business and industry leaders, bankers, entrepreneurs and government officials from throughout Southern New Jersey will meet to discuss improving the region’s economy and promoting job creation.
“We have seen unprecedented growth in Camden County from our northern most point to our southern border adjacent to Atlantic County. The Freeholder Board is watching corporate towers grow from the banks of the Delaware River to new residential development being built around the farms of Winslow,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “We have seen a historic swing of the pendulum over the last three years as the unemployment rate has been cut in half and new jobs flood area. The Tri-County Economic Summit provides a forum for us and business leaders to explore new ways to focus on further growth and tell our story of success to our colleagues.”
The 12th Annual Tri-County Economic Development Summit is sponsored jointly by Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties and will showcase the region’s resources in both the public and private sectors, as well as highlight many of the economic agendas and advancements of South Jersey. With the theme, What’s Brewin’ in South Jersey, this year’s summit will focus on new and upcoming tourism with local wine and beer producers.
This year’s keynote speaker is Jake Buganski, Acting Executive Director of the New Jersey Division of Travel and Tourism.
