2011 RECAP


Carol Colletta, Tom Murphy and Governor John Hickenlooper | ULI Powering Innovative Economies | Conference | Hilton Bayfront

In 2011 in conjunction with ART SAN DIEGO, the Urban Land Institute gathered private sector and public sector leaders to get the best ideas and techniques for sparking and growing innovation economies in our cities.

“Each year this conference brings some of the best minds in the country – including Governor John Hickenlooper from Colorado, former Pittsburg Mayor Tom Murphy, and former CEOs for Cities CEO Carol Coletta – to share creative economic development strategies. This is an opportune moment, and San Diego is the ideal place, to engage in a discussion about how we continue to be a leader in innovation, not only in technology, but also culture, design, and public placemaking.” – David Malmuth, Conference Chair | Powering Innovation Economies
