Workshop proposals, sponsorship deadlines fast approaching for May 14th ‘Power of Place Summit’

Partners, stakeholder groups encouraged to propose and help facilitate a range of workshop topics for advancing the transformation of Rhode Island’s economy

Believing intently that Rhode Island has all the ingredients to transform itself into an economic and cultural leader, Grow Smart will convene the 3rd Biennial Power of Place Summit on Friday, May 14, 2010 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in downtown Providence. Among the goals for the confab is to increase the capacity of public and private decision makers to recognize the opportunities for playing more effectively to our strengths and capitalizing on our many place-based assets.

Grow Smart will once again partner with Providence Business News (PBN) to produce a Summit program insert previewing the topics, workshops, speakers and sponsors, reaching more than 27,000 influential readers in Southeastern New England. Confirm your Summit sponsorship by February 26, 2010 and get your organization’s logo included on the PBN supplement cover.

The Summit is expected to draw up to 500 opinion leaders ranging from federal, state and local officials, academics, developers, architects and real estate professionals to planners, investors and staff from many policy advocacy groups. The program will take a closer look at how to achieve sustainable economic prosperity using strategies that revitalize urban and town centers, increase housing options and affordability, promote clean and efficient transportation choices, maintain a vital agricultural sector and that ensure responsible stewardship of our natural resources.

Online registration to open in March
