2020 Program 

Date: November 18 | Time: 12 - 1 p.m. | Register

KC continues to be the No. 1 choice for businesses and talent - even during this wild ride we call 2020. Perhaps you missed the news, but not only has our region recently been named a Top Mid-Size City for Businesses to locate, it's also been recognized as the Best U.S. City for Remote Workers.

Looking for more proof? Over the summer, KCADC's business recruitment team helped to welcome multiple business expansions and relocations with community partners across the region. These successes include Chewy, Inc., Urban Outfitters, Tuthill Corporation and more ... with even more on the way. 

Expect to be well entertained as KCADC delivers a one-hour, fast-moving television production. This year's show celebrates the impactful choices made by regional leadership, executive decision makers and influencers that contribute to the success and advancement of our KC Heartland.
