RevitalizeWA: A Resounding Success!
RevitalizeWA 2023 was a resounding success! 🌟 This week, VDA had the privilege of hosting 350+ attendees, representing 72 Washington communities, and 8 states.
Over the course of 3 exciting days, we gathered at 15 downtown venues to engage in 50 thought-provoking workshop sessions centered around economic development, placemaking, and preservation.
Our downtown lit up to welcome these attendees, many of which were bustling at our local restaurants and retailers. We are thrilled to announce that this conference contributed over $204,000 in economic activity to our beloved downtown, demonstrating the tangible benefits of our collective efforts.
VDA applied to host this conference in Q1 of 2023. For our event recap and economic statement, please click here: RevitalizeWA 2023 Summary & Impact Report
