Eyes on Renton is a celebration of business. We are a City that has grown from 53,000 to 103,000 in 10 years. The Renton Chamber of Commerce believes this phenomenal growth has much to do with existing and new businesses that have planted their flag in our city. We will hear from them as they tell their story.
The breakfast meeting will be a forum from different industry sectors to talk about their operation and a chance to present accomplishments. We're asking Manufacturing, Hospitality, Technology, Health Care, Education and new projects to tell us more. The who, what, why, when and where of their business.
Eyes on Renton is exactly that. What's happening in Renton? The City is booming thanks to our continued business growth. Business and community leaders will each have 5 - 7 minutes to discuss their endeavors and their vision of Renton's future. The “take away for attendees” will be an insider’s look at our business community and a realization that now more than ever before, all eyes are on Renton.
