Rural Business Summit Coming to USU Eastern


Press Release

Join Representative John Curtis on Friday, Nov. 9, for a Rural Business Summit where business and workers meet. Participate in workforce training sessions, learn how to establish a business, find opportunities for growth, and collaborate with startups, entrepreneurs, business leaders and investors.

“We’ve found that the most effective way to increase employment in rural Utah is to help businesses grow,” event organizers shared. “There is a shortage of labor along the Wasatch Front, so it can be difficult to fill positions, yet we have high unemployment in rural areas. The Rural Business Summit will provide new opportunities to help businesses expand and tap into the talent pool of rural Utah.”

Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox will be the keynote speaker followed by interactive training sessions and business breakouts. Attendees can take advantage of the networking opportunities and browse business exhibit booths. Those in attendance will also enjoy a catered lunch along with a presentation by Derek Miller of the Salt Lake Chamber.

“Gain insights and best practices in rural employment as you listen to our business resource panel,” said event organizers. “And hear from our closing Keynote Speaker Vale Hale, Executive Director at Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development. Get ready to be inspired, to innovate, and to cultivate a successful business ecosystem within your community. If you’re a worker who needs a job, an employer who needs workers, a business who wants to expand, or an entrepreneur who needs direction, then the Rural Business Summit is for you.”
