Wickenburg Economic Development Tour
Wednesday, August 8th, 2018
Tour starts at noon, meeting location TBA soon.
Each year, the Rural Development Council puts together an economic development tour so attendees can get a good sense of what makes the host town economically vibrant.
These behind-the-scenes tours include discussions with owners, experts, and enthusiasts who will provide insight into workforce successes and challenges, community collaboration, innovation, tourism development, and other strategic initiatives unique to the region. Wickenburg, a town of 6500 people, has a variety of economic drivers.
On our tour, we’ll hear from experts at Meadows Behavioral Healthcare and their advances in medical tourism. We’ll also visit BearCat manufacturing, where they’ve been building high precision asphalt maintenance equipment since 1969. We’ll get a first-hand look at the vertically integrated Matori Farms, which grows healthy food year round, and a world-class performing arts center with ongoing productions that drive visitors from all over the world. Lunch and transportation will be included. Times and details forthcoming.
