    The Economic Future Forum is a forward-looking conference that focuses on fostering innovation and economic transformation in the new economy. The conference explores industry trends and the partnerships and strategies needed to grow, attract, retain, and expand companies in established and emerging industries. Join fellow economic development professionals and experience Salt Lake City's economic development success, including its enormous urban revitalization and recent downtown revival, the strong legacy of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, and the city's thriving arts and entertainment scene.
