In recent years, the five states of the U.S. Gulf Coast have been slammed by major hurricanes and by a major oil disaster. The people, businesses, institutions, and environment of the Gulf Coast continue to be affected by these disasters. But there is also a major opportunity to chart a better future. Especially with the billions of dollars being spent in the region by BP and the Gulf Coast Claims Facility and billions more expected to be provided to the region by BP oil spill fines.
The Gulf Coast Leadership Summit brings together large and small businesses; investors from throughout the U.S. and around the world; local, state, and federal government officials; military bases; nonprofit organizations and professional associations; celebrities interested in making a difference; and the media to empower a better future for the U.S. Gulf Coast.
The vision of the Summit is to bring together everyone who wants a better future for the U.S. Gulf Coast. For individuals, this means seeing what new jobs the Summit has to offer. For small businesses, it means identifying additional oil spill compensation and other resources needed to rebuild and expand. For local and state economic development officials, it means listening to and meeting investors from around the country and beyond, interested in investing in new economic sectors in the five U.S. Gulf States. For local and state emergency management officials, it means identifying the latest and most effective solutions to prepare for and respond to future disasters, including more oil spills and future hurricanes.
The Summit features general sessions, break-out sessions, an exhibition, press conferences, and networking opportunities.
