Annual State of the Region Conference Slated for June 13

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. — The New England’s Knowledge Corridor Partnership’s annual State of the Region Conference will be held June 13 from 7:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. at the Sheraton Hotel at Bradley International Airport. The program’s centerpiece will be an action agenda for sustaining the interstate region’s economic competitiveness. New England’s Knowledge Corridor extends along the I-91 corridor from New Haven, Conn., through Hartford and Springfield, to Greenfield. The agenda is the result of a three-year, multi-million-dollar study funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The keynote speaker will be Steven Wray, executive director of the Economy League of Greater Philadelphia, a nationally recognized regional collaborative. Other highlights include the presentation of the region’s annual InternHero Awards, the introduction of the New England’s Knowledge Corridor Partnership’s new marketing-branding campaign, and an update on developments across the region.
