Opportunities Conference

The SGVEP’s Opportunities Conference, previously known as the Economic Outlook Conference began in 1995 with the purpose to maintain economic growth and market the San Gabriel Valley with a different theme every year. The annual conference has featured an exhibitor area, two general sessions, and lunch with a guest keynote speaker and is attended by 300 - 400 of the region's top business, civic and political leaders. The 2013 Conference is being planned for late spring.
