Georgetown Economic Development Symposium



This year we are excited to announce Ms. Revathi Greenwood, Americas Head of Research for Cushman and Wakefield as our 2019 Economic Development Symposium keynote speaker. Ms. Greenwood will present a 2020 vision and forecast for Commercial Real Estate in 2020. Included in her presentation is a preview of the prominent  Cushman and Wakefield Annual Economic Forecast Report for 2020.

The Economic Development Symposium will take place at the Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel and Conference Center on Friday, November 1, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Lunch is included.

The city of Georgetown Economic Development Department holds it’s annual Symposium each fall.  We invite a nationally recognized expert to share insightful analysis on a topic of importance to business owners, real estate professionals, and community leaders.  Past events have highlighted the impact of the Presidential election on the economy, how changing retail-customer behaviors ripple through the economy, and workforce trends.  In addition to the keynote speaker, Georgetown city leaders provide a look back at the year’s important announcements and events and give a sneak peek of those to come.
