The Summit presents an unrivaled opportunity for attendees to gain insights on the future of Utah's economy and the business community's policy priorities for the upcoming legislative session.
While Utah is experiencing many of the same challenges as the rest of the country and the world, Utah's leaders are focused on both our short-term recovery and our long-term growth and strength.
