Global economic climate, discussions on the national debt, business growth solutions and market forecasts will be some of the key topics to be presented at the 6th Annual Rocky Mountain Economic Summit on July 11, 2014. The event is hosted by David Kotok, the Global Interdependence Center (GIC), the Bronze Buffalo Foundation and Utah State University. 

The event is a unique experience for investors, market and industry watchers and entrepreneurs, as most typically, breaking economic news will occur during the day’s proceedings, with on-site press coverage typically including the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Reuters, Fox Business, CNBC and the Washington Times. (I’ll be providing coverage myself as a contributor for Forbes Entrepreneurs).

“This event is rapidly becoming one of the top economic summits in America,” said Justin Hyde, co-founder of the Bronze Buffalo Foundation, which hosts incoming economists and select business leaders at the Star Valley Trout Ranch Resort in the days leading up to each year’s Summit event.

Entrance to the full-day Rocky Mountain Summit event is $495 and includes catered breakfast and lunch, Summit panels on Global Economic Outlook, Private Banking and Investment, and a Rolls Royce after party that includes networking time with event speakers, live entertainment, test drives, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Event registration also includes a one-year membership to the GIC worth $200.
