LAS VEGAS – The early bird discount rate for Reservation Economic Summit (RES) 2018 ends on Friday, November 3, the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (the National Center) announced today. RES, now in its 32nd year, will return to the Mirage in Las Vegas from March 5-8 of next year. RES is the largest economic development event in Indian Country, bringing together tribally owned businesses, Native entrepreneurs, major corporations, government officials, subject matter experts, and others to learn about contemporary business issues and practices, network, and do business.

The National Center also announced that it will be accepting proposals for session topics from potential speakers and panelists at RES. If you are interested in presenting a proposal for a session at RES, submissions are due by Wednesday, November 1. More information about proposal requirements can be found here.

“RES 2018 promises to be one of our biggest and best yet,” said Chris James, President and CEO of the National Center. “Those interested in learning more about or doing business in Indian Country should not miss their opportunity to register for National RES at the early bird rate and begin making their plans for Las Vegas. Today’s business and tribal leaders must continue to build upon best practices to get to their next level – RES is where that can happen and business gets done. You do not want to miss it.”

The full agenda for RES will be developed and continuously updated in the coming months. As has been the case in years past, attendees will experience interactive programming designed to create business opportunities, informative sessions on current economic development topics, a trade show spanning the Native economy, the Native American artisan market, and networking opportunities throughout the four-day event. The National Center expects significant participation and attendance from key federal and tribal officials, major corporations, financial institutions, and companies seeking procurement 
and partnership opportunities.
