Welcome to the 2021 Detroit Policy Conference

You’re invited to join the Detroit Regional Chamber for its 2021 Detroit Policy Conference on Tuesday, July 13, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Conference will provide a platform to celebrate and discuss Detroit’s bright future. National and local thought leaders will share insight on Detroit’s resilience and ability to come back stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sessions will highlight the future of workplace and space, hospitality, small business, downtown development, major events, and business and neighborhood investment. Racial justice and social equity for Detroiters as well as the upcoming Detroit city election will also be part of the discussion.

This year, the Conference will be in-person at the Aretha Franklin Amphitheatre, a unique outdoor venue, operating within the current public health and safety guidelines. Detroit small businesses will have the opportunity to share their products, services, and strategy. Speakers and sessions will also be accessible virtually.
