The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce’s annual State of the City Series is the premier annual forum for interaction among the business, civic and community leaders across Hampton Roads. Each address is held in the featured city and is delivered by the mayor of that city. In 2015, a record-breaking 4,024 people attended the five-part series to learn about key business development initiatives, municipal progress updates and opportunities in the cities where they live, work and do business.
The series will kick off with the Virginia Beach address on Thursday, February 11 at noon at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. The Honorable Will Sessoms will provide a glimpse into the City's future, address community issues, and highlight development and success. Nearly 1,000 of the regions business, political and community leaders are expected to be in attendance.
The State of the City Series connects the community and provides valuable insight on issues impacting businesses and the region. They have become the preferred forum for elected officials and mayors to communicate with their constituents and are often sold out events.
