    With PEDA's Spring conferences annually held in the state capital of Harrisburg, we continue the practice of holding our Fall conferences in various locations around the state, allowing our members and their communities to be highlighted for all they have to offer. This October 21 - 23, 2013, PEDA will be holding its Fall Conference in Pittsburgh at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Pittsburgh Downtown. This region is recognized as much for its rich industrial history as for its resilience and successful transformation to meet the business, educational recreational recreational needs of its residents and visitors. Through partnerships, innovations and collaboration, the Greater Pittsburgh region is a shining example of excellence in economic development. Learn more about the region here.


    Recent PEDA conferences have focused on current issues, industries and trends pertinent to economic development and to the regions selected for these events. As our Conference committee and leadership strive to provide high quality content and venues, we also turn our attention to our members and partners whose participation as sponsors, exhibitors and advertisers allows us to continually improve the experience being offered.



    As you read about the enclosed sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities associated with the 2013 Fall Conference, I encourage you to also consider partners in your own communities who may benefit from sponsoring this or future conferences or specific keynote speakers or from reserving an exhibit booth at one of PEDA's events. As the statewide association for economic developers, we believe these venues are ideal for receiving continuing education, making new connections and sharing best practices. Please consider raising your own profile or that of a partner by participating as a sponsor for the 2013 Fall Conference and feel free to contact me with any questions at 717-441-6047. Thank you for your consideration.



    Please join our sponsors who have already committed, including:


    PLATINUM - Pittsburgh Regional Alliance


    GOLD - Washington County Chamber of Commerce


    SILVER - Marcellus Shale Coalition, Wells Fargo, National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining


    BRONZE - First Energy, PECO


    EXHIBITORS, ADVERTISERS & SUPPORTERS - SSM Group, KU Resources, Economic Progress Alliance of Crawford County, Centre County Industrial Development Corporation, Business & Community Financing Solutions, Cohen & Grigsby



    Room rates for this conference have been reserved for $159/night for single, double, triple and quad. To make a reservation, please call (800) 222-TREE (8733) and refer to the 2013 PEDA Fall Conference room block. Though reservations MUST be made by no later than September 19, 2013, downtown Pittsburgh has a number of scheduled events taking place the week of our conference and - once the room block has been filled - it is unlikely any additional rooms will be available.

    If you haven't yet had an opportunity to join the ranks of those registered for the April 29th - May 1st event being held in Harrisburg and related events, please be encouraged to visit the conference website to learn more and register online or, alternatively, to download the conference registration brochure.  You can also take a look at downtown restaurants in advance of your trip and, if you've been on the fence, please note that exhibitor options are still available!
