Ignite the Hampton Roads Economy:  Learn From Nashville's Success
The Hampton Roads Chamber is hosting regional business and community leaders on an Inter-Regional Visit (IRV) to Nashville, Tennessee on November 28 - 30, 2017.

 

Hampton Roads is positioning itself to be the next boom economy.   With recent news articles positioning Virginia Beach as the top city in the country (according to an evaluation by WalletHub) and the Hampton Roads region categorized as the number one region for millennial growth in Time Magazine, Hampton Roads is building incredible momentum on a national scale. In an effort to continue to move Hampton Roads forward the Hampton Roads Chamber is hosting regional business and community leaders on an Inter-Regional Visit (IRV) to Nashville, Tennessee on November 28 - 30, 2017.

Why Nashville? During the visit to Music City participants will examine three key areas to the city's success: Economic Development, Workforce Development, and Infrastructure Development. Meet and talk with Nashville leaders about their best practices and collaborate with other local business leaders in Hampton Roads on how to best utilize the ideas garnered through these sessions.

The agenda will include informational stops at various Nashville landmarks that specifically relate to our objectives.  Participants will attend a Nashville Predator's game and experience a behind the scenes tour of the Bridgestone Arena to gain valuable insight to how Hampton Roads can best develop our arenas for success.  The group will tour the impressive Nashville Entrepreneur Center to determine ways to enhance our entrepreneurial presence.  The trip will also include a visit the Gulch to understand how city planning and infrastructure development operates as an economic catalyst.  Participants will also meet with Nashville’s leaders to learn how they have filled the workforce gap with programs like WorkIT Nashville.

Join us and other regional thinkers, planners and doers on this incredible opportunity to learn how our region can better develop our brand and sense of place. The Inter-Regional Visit to Nashville will be November 28 - November 30, 2017. Participants will stay at the Hilton Nashville Downtown.
