The Maryland Economic Development Association (MEDA), in partnership with counties and municipalities throughout the state, announces its fifth annual Economic Development Week. Being held from Monday, Sept. 28, through Friday, Oct. 2, the weeklong celebration will emphasize the importance of economic development and showcase the efforts and initiatives improving business retention, job growth and quality of life for Maryland residents.

As part of Economic Development Week, the MEDA Fall Conference: Emerging Innovative Technologies in Maryland, will be held on Oct. 1 at the Silver Spring Civic Building in Silver Spring, Maryland. The event will feature provocative discussions and presentations highlighting innovators and what’s driving them, how innovation is encouraging new markets to develop and how the state can strategically support these emerging markets.

“This is an exciting week for MEDA and for economic development professionals,” said MEDA President Keasha Haythe, CEcD. “We’re looking forward to shedding light on our craft and getting a chance to learn how innovation is shaking things up in Maryland.”
