Area leaders will be sharing thoughts and insights into the future of this key industry critical to our region. Listen as they focus on: Top trends in key industries vital to our region?s growth Areas where industries need support How has COVID helped key sectors innovate and look at things differently What are some of the biggest, most impactful changes for the future What have industry leaders learned most that they can share with others What is WDM EDGE? West Des Moines is on the cutting edge of innovation and growth. With a population of more than 65,000, West Des Moines is one of the fastest growing cities in Iowa. Nearly 3,000 businesses call West Des Moines home and many of those companies and business sectors have their own distinct set of challenges. The Chamber?s WDM Edge (formerly Business Roundtable) brings subject matter expertise to the podium for an exchange of information that impacts business owners and community across all industries. In 2021, we will examine top industries that call West Des Moines home, trends in those industries, and what we can to do as a community to help support and create an ecosystem that helps these industries continue to thrive. Our hope is from these discussions, as a community, we might discover new ideas that help to propel our region even more forward. Industries in West Des Moines we will be highlighting include: Real Estate & Development Information Technology Financial Services & Insurance Medical & Life Sciences Manufacturing & Logistics Retail & Hospitality Arts & Entertainment Expert Panelists: Steve Frevert - Executive Director | Historic Valley Junction Foundation Al Laudencia- Owner and CEO | Big Al?s BBQ Reonna Snyder - Sales Executive | Heart of America Group Meredith Wells - Co-Owner | MoMereTuesday, 10/26, 2021
