Registration has begun for Project Grow Smart’s “The Power of Place Summit” at the Rhode Island Convention Center.

This year the biennial state conference will focus on “Positioning Rhode Island for an Economic Renaissance,” looking at opportunities for Rhode Island to promote smart growth, development and policy. It will examine ways to leverage state assets and redefine assets in order to promote a healthier economy.

Online registration is open at www.GrowSmartRI.com until May 20. The conference will take place at the Convention Center on May 23 from 8 am to 5 pm.

Our Power of Place Summit is as much an educational, as it is an invigorating experience because we’re focusing on the assets and strengths that contribute to our state’s exceptional quality of place,” said Wolf, who indicated that Grow Smart RI is charged with combating the state’s lack of confidence—an issue that he considers to be one of the biggest economic and marketing challenges facing Rhode Island,” said Scott Wolf, the executive director of GrowSmart RI.

The events include a keynote address from international political analyst and author Dr. Benjamin Barber entitled “If Mayors Ruled the World” and a candidates panel discussion featuring the Rhode Island gubernatorial candidates.
