GSP has secured a bid to host the ACE 15 Program in the Fall of 2022. Alongside a hosting team including the Washington State Dept. of Commerce, PSRC, and Visit Seattle, GSP will craft an agenda that showcases key assets across the three-county region with an emphasis on visits to emerging job hubs. The ACE Program is led by a multi-disciplinary team with representatives from the EDA, OAS, and ITA and will bring a delegation of 30-50 economic development leaders from across the Americas and the world to experience all that the Greater Seattle community has to offer.
Starting in March, and proceeding throughout the year, the Hosting Team will engage leaders in communities across selected emerging geographies to provide input in the planning process and participate in the itinerary through weekly calls.
