Wrapping up with over 200 registrants, over 40 sponsors, and an unparalleled lineup of speakers and moderators, we are pleased to report that the 2017 BPC Spring Summit was another successful one. This year’s Spring Summit, our signature annual event, was held May on 11th at the Oakland Scottish Rite Center. Following a theme of Uncharted Waters – Finding Opportunity in Uncertainty, topics of conversation included the state of the regional economy, navigating regulatory uncertainty, the short and long term risks facing the Bay Area, and how to go about finding opportunity in the face of the many challenges that come with all of the above.
For the first time, panels were moderated by local media personalities, including Denis Cuff (Bay Area News Group), Ed Baxter (Bloomberg Global News Network), Phil Matier (San Francisco Chronicle/KPIX), and John Diaz (San Francisco Chronicle). The San Francisco Chronicle’s John King closed out the day with a captivating presentation on sea level rise. We extend our thanks to all of the presenters and to all that came out, participated in the audience polling, and asked thoughtful questions that enriched the conversations throughout the day.
We would especially like to thank all of this year’s sponsors for making the event possible, and to Wendel Rosen Black & Dean LLP for graciously hosting the VIP Reception on the eve of the Summit.
