Virtual Table Talk

The Guild has taken its most popular conference networking session online! We are thrilled to introduce Virtual Table Talk.

What: A premier networking opportunity with Guild members via Zoom

When: Wednesday, October 28, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. ET Sold out

How it Works:

  • We will place economic development organizations together in breakout rooms (capped at five economic developers per room).
  • Individual Guild members will be placed in each breakout room and rotate rooms every 12 minutes – which means EDOs will meet with eight different Guild members over the course of two hours, while staying with the same group of five EDO peers the entire time.
  • Like our in-person Table Talk sessions, there won’t be any agenda – just free flowing conversation and a chance to connect with our members and gather industry intelligence.


  • $250 per attendee – granting you access to one “seat” within a Zoom breakout room.
  • $1,250 for an entire breakout room (five seats total) – granting you and your partners access to a private Zoom breakout room.


Our October date is sold out! Stay tuned for more information on our next Table Talk scheduled for December 8.
