2023 WEDA Best Practices Conference

The 2023 WEDA Best Practices Conference will be held Sept. 27-29, in beautiful Wausau, WI. The Jefferson Street Inn in the heart of downtown Wausau plays host. Amazing restaurants and pubs, all within walking distance, will make this a great City to explore! Plus, we have arranged for you to view the Fall Colors on Friday afternoon on the ski lift at Granite Peak Ski Hill!

The upcoming conference will provide attendees with a tremendous opportunity to dive into the fundamentals of economic development and the leading issues of the day, including workforce housing; childcare access; talent attraction; business expansion and retention best practices; and redevelopment and revitalization opportunities.

In addition to a wealth of networking opportunities, dynamic speakers, and continuing education credit certifications (EDFP, CEcD and AICP), the Best Practices Conference will include the Community and Economic Development Awards (CEDA). The CEDA Awards program recognizes and celebrates exceptional projects, programs, and businesses that drive economic growth in Wisconsin.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2023 Best Practices Conference. Come for the conference and take in the beauty of Wausau and Central Wisconsin!  Register today and get more info!
