KCADC’s Annual Meeting celebration is the most prominent and well-attended business event in the Kansas City metropolitan area – drawing 1,500 of KC’s top corporate and civic influencers.

This year’s program, Best of Both Worlds | A Town Hall on Regional Growth, offers a brand new format and rare dual appearance by this year's speakers. Join us for a town hall discussion with two of the preeminent national experts on how cities grow and develop. Richard Florida and Joel Kotkin will present their unique perspectives on urban and suburban development – and how cities today must excel at both to stay competitive for businesses and talented people.

Florida and Kotkin rarely appear on stage together, but often present their viewpoints through popular media including The Daily Beast: Kotkin v. Florida, and Newsweek.
