Workshop Details

For many communities, our small businesses are working at an

“independent” level, trying their best to succeed and in some cases, to just

stay afloat without an active support system in place to help them address

needs and market opportunities. While overall economic development efforts

in communities of all sizes don’t always include attention and support to

small businesses, Main Street is all about strengthening our existing local

economy by supporting our downtown entrepreneurs. From developing retail

promotions that work, to cutting-edge tools that add understanding on trends

and best practices, this session will highlight important strategies to not only

position your Main Street program as a valuable partner, but consciously build a strong supportive environment for the success of our downtown entrepreneurs.


Registration is $100 per person for Missouri Main Street Members; $200 for non-members through August 30th. Add $25 to member and non-member rate beginning August 31st. Save on registration and become a member.

All cancellations/refunds must be submitted in writing. Cancellations after September 9th are not refundable.
