Innovation Summit: Reopening Central Oregon

May 19, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


In the wake of the COVID-19 business closures, Central Oregon companies want to reopen and do it safely. To assist these businesses, economic development organizations and successful entrepreneurs from across our region will host a FREE Innovation Summit to bring together expertise to jump start the process.

The summit will be held on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 from 9 AM to 12 PM. For the first part of the summit, entrepreneurs and economic development organizations will discuss the rules, protocols, and best practices for reopening. Next, each attendee may join a breakout session to learn more about the safety protocols and how they apply to their industry.


Join our experts to learn about:
– the protocols, requirements, and timeline for reopening;
– what rules apply to your industry sector; and
– how to create your reopening plan,
– where to find funding, and get help in your community.


The cost to attendees is free.


This event will be hosted via Zoom Webinar and the login information will be sent prior to the event.
