Dave will be joined on the panel by other community leaders including representatives from the city of Dayton, Troy, and Hamilton.

The keynote speaker will be from Project for Public Spaces (PPS), an organization dedicated to helping people create and sustain public spaces that build stronger communities. The schedule for the event includes a panel of local Mayors, updates on the marketing and branding initiatives for the corridor, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities.
