The Southern Tier Industry Summit Series was created in the Fall of 2018 to serve as a platform to represent the region through one unified voice promoting the growth and opportunity of our industry sectors. By presenting the Southern Tier Region as a whole and with one united voice, rather than as individual counties, we become a fierce competitor in the national arena for expansion, economic development, and business relocation, while expanding and strengthening our industry sectors. Understand our goal
The goal is to bring like-minded, industry-focused individuals from the both private and public sectors to learn about the potential growth and details of our industries, share best practices, and spearhead collaboration on upcoming projects throughout the Southern Tier Region. In a nutshell, this is what each summit is designed to accomplish. Learn about the impact
This program was originally designed to cover 8 counties in the Southern Tier region (Broome, Tioga, Tompkins, Chenango, Otsego, Delaware, Cortland, and Schoharie). Within its first year, it has extended and collaborated with Southern Tier Central, with our Active Recovery Event, which covers Chemung, Schuyler, and Steuben counties. It is evident that the impact and growth of this program is making a mark throughout the Upstate New York region and it is only bound for more growth and collaboration. Discover the creators
The summits were developed out of Southern Tier 8’s 2018 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) meetings, where hundreds of Southern Tier stakeholders from the private and public sectors contributed ideas to strengthen and promote the Southern Tier. Discover the talent
