South Metro Development Outlook (SMDO) Conference, the largest event of its kind in metro Atlanta, highlights continued economic development, planning, infrastructure, transportation, and related issues facing Clayton, Coweta, Douglas, Fayette, Henry, and South Fulton Counties, as well as the City of Atlanta. Now in its 18th year, SMDO’s theme is “Vision 2020.” More than 600 attendees are expected.

SMDO includes a view of upcoming economic development activities and topics that engage attendees by discussing trends, strengths, challenges and opportunities in South Atlanta communities. This year promises to be an exciting conference as it explores transformative development projects including Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport’s expansion and development, Aerotropolis Atlanta Alliance, and updates on new economic development activity in the region. Additionally, it will examine the impact of Smart Cities and Autonomous Vehicles on South Metro’s economic development, spark thought-provoking dialogue on South Metro Transportation, and provide an opportunity to hear from the newly elected Mayor of the City of College Park, Bianca Motley-Broom.

Admission is $80 for advance registration and $90 for onsite registration.
