2007 Memphis

Health Care was a major focus on our first City Visit outside the State of Florida including tours and meetings at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Memphis Bioworks Foundation Incubator and School & Medtronics Spinal/Biologistics Office & Distribution Facility.

Memphis has had recent success in Downtown Development & Redevelopment, our team met with and toured projects built by Henry Turley, Architect Frank Ricks who designed Memphis’s new Dowtown Baseball Stadium and residential projects surrounding it & Pitt Hyde, Founder of Autozone and toured his new Downtown Stadium.

Our meetings with CEO’s for Cities, Carol Coletta, the MPACT Memphis leadership, a young professional organization and getting to tour Memphis’s premier incubator, EmergeMemphis were highlights of our trip.  We also met with Higher Education representatives of The University of Memphis & High Skill High Wage Employer FedEx.    AGENDA    PRESENTATION
