GLIDE 2019 is heading to San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Sonoma County September 8-11, 2019. This four day, three night trip will explore two critical areas of growth for our region: technology and tourism.
As always, GLI is focusing on initiatives that lead to regional business and talent attraction and growth. GLIDE 2019 will take us to the world’s foremost technology hotbed to gain a much deeper understanding of tech business, investment and workforce. Then we will extend on to California wine country to see what that region may teach us about our own bourbon tourism, or “bourbonism”. We will use this year’s intercity leadership expedition to build on the momentum of our region and implement best practices from the experts in tourism and modern technology.
GLIDE has become one of the community’s most valuable opportunities to build collaboration and make positive changes in our region. This trip is designed to provide community representatives, elected officials, entrepreneurs, education delegates and business leaders, an opportunity to see how selected cities have overcome obstacles and achieved success. Recent trips have taken us to hot cities like Denver, Nashville, Austin, Portland, and Charlotte.
We will spend the first two nights in downtown San Francisco, which will serve as our home base as we explore the magic of Silicon Valley. Then the group will move out to Sonoma County for the last two days of the trip. Being San Francisco, extensions and significant others are encouraged.
Registration is $3200* and includes four days and three night hotel accommodations, all meals, snacks, receptions, ground transportation and briefing materials. Register early as the last three GLIDE trips have sold out well in advance.
