The session, which is targeted toward business leaders, elected officials, lenders, realtors and economic development professionals, will include reports on available lands and buildings in or near the city of Fergus Falls as well as reports on vacancy rates and emerging opportunities.
In addition to local real estate and business development experts, speakers include FedStar’s David Gaffaney, a former Minnesota USDA Business Development Director, who will share insights on how to access USDA loans and guarantees successfully, and Toby Madden, an Economist with the Minneapolis Federal Reserve speaking on the 2013 Outlook for the Economy.
The 2013 Development Guide and the 2013 Business and Incentive Guide will be distributed at the session.
The 2013 Fergus Falls Economic Outlook Session will be at the West Central Initiative, 1000 Western Avenue, Fergus Falls.
