For this event we will be using a virtual event platform called Remo. This platform will provide attendees the opportunity to move around the event and join virtual “tables” to meet and connect with hundreds of business and personal contacts. For the best user experience, it is recommended that you use Chrome as your web browser and connect to WIFI instead of a VPN.

To register and access the event, click here. All downtown stakeholders are welcome and encouraged to attend!
