What is the VerdeXchange Arizona Conference?

VerdeXchange Arizona is a state, regional and global leadership conference for sustainable economic growth. The annual event has captured the imagination of the leadership with its in-depth content and its consistent drive fostering connections for business contracts. Leaders come because of the rare opportunity to expand their thinking and grow their business structural processes. There are no middle-men at VerdeXchange Arizona – no salesmen – only those who sign on the dotted line.

Who Attends Arizona's VerdeXchange Conference?

In February of 2015 this concept delivered 33 Arizona cities, 22 foreign countries and 13 US states to the conference. This diverse group of leaders from all walks of life listened to over 150 speakers covering topics such as sustainability, manufacturing, education, energy, water, international trade, the economy, finances, healthcare, real estate, transportation, technology, public private partnership, etc. — 30 panels plus.

Connecting Arizona to the Nation and the World

With staff-assisted connections always available and all requests “to meet” honored, the outcomes are the best part of the conference. The business done is real and timely – not put off to tomorrow or the future. It is done at the conference, arranged for and placements made for execution. The meeting rooms and the “talking tables” are always filled with those making it happen.

Group
