UPCOMING EXPOS

Join us at our nationwide conference dedicated to Opportunity Zone stakeholders. Through its extensive network of professionals and industry experts, the Opportunity Zone Expo helps expand your business network and keep you updated about the industry.

Economic Development Agencies

Economic development agencies develop and bolster economic growth within a defined city, state or region. The agencies provide necessary resources and invaluable assistance, making them among the best sources of information for start-ups and expanding businesses looking for new development or investment opportunities.

Many of these agencies throughout the United States have created a prospectus highlighting their Opportunity Zones. The agencies note what projects or developments are needed and would be successful for their communities.

The Opportunity Zone Expo’s goal is to promote agencies using our product offerings, such as our website, podcasts, magazine, social media accounts and events. Using the Opportunity Zone Expo platform will gain exposure to potential investors across the country.
