Wilkes-Barre Connect Conference
In 2019, Wilkes-Barre Connect held its first Conference. The three-day event showcased the transformation of Northeastern Pennsylvania, into a hub of innovation, relying on creative storytelling and presentations from the region’s best students, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and young professionals shaping our region. We brought together over 200 students, creatives, intrapreneurs, business leaders, and speakers, and were able to fund 100 student scholarships for this event.
The event was held again in 2022, featuring a theme of Innovate. Create. Go., and demonstrating the power of our creative, innovative, and entrepreneurial spirit in Northeastern PA. At this most recent conference, we wanted our attendees to grow both personally and professionally from the conference content, become more educated on the tremendous innovation and creativity in Northeast PA, and have an opportunity to participate in community-centric workshops to solve social and economic challenges in our region. We highlighted innovative projects, showcase successful entrepreneurs, and inspire and engage students, instilling valuable information that anyone at any stage in their career can use to grow.
We are excited to make this a reoccurring event in future years! Check out our Chamber calendar to stay updated on event date announcements.
