What's Next? Planning Strategies for COVID-19 Economic Recovery


When the health crisis begins to lessen, as it will, North Americans and Europeans will see massive government investments to stimulate economic recovery—perhaps the largest since World War Two and the great depression. For this webinar, we've invited four experts to discuss what economic recovery can - and should - look like, and what economic developers can begin doing right away to ensure their regions are poised to hit the ground running when we all anticipate hitting play after the The Great Pause.

Join us as we speak with Leann Hackman-Carty, founder, HackmanCarty & Associates, Chris Knight, co-founder and chief commercial officer at Wavteq, Horton H. Hobbs IV, vice president of economic development for Expand Greater Springfield, and Russell Riblett, vice president of sales at GIS Planning.


  • Strategies and responses to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Resilience READI - a model for recovery and resilience on an ongoing basis
  • Anticipating and planning for FDI trends
  • Emerging best practices for supporting local businesses
  • Strategic uses of data
  • And much more!
