Greater Portland Inc’s signature event celebrates GPI’s role as the region’s premier public-private partnership and shines a spotlight on our region’s competitiveness in a global economy.

This year, the Summit highlights our region’s most valuable resource - our people. With conversations led by nationally recognized experts, we will explore how investing in our entrepreneurs, educators, businesses and communities can drive returns to our region’s advancing economy.

The Summit is the one event of the year that brings hundreds of key decision-makers from different parts of the region and different industries together in one room. Don't miss this opportunity to connect with the leaders shaping our community's future. The morning begins with a networking breakfast in the Sunken Ballroom. After breakfast, an exciting program will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Kridel Grand Ballroom.
