PRESENTED BY   Kaiser-2

What is Region Rising?

Region Rising is an innovative inaugural conference like no other in California’s Capital Region, past or present. It is one special day in the year dedicated to dreaming big about what our region’s future will be, and having challenging discussions on how each of us can bring it to life, now.

Our goal is simple

Create one massive collision spot where more than 1,000 people come together from all parts of our region — private, public, and community sectors — to mix and mingle and collaborate in an idea-rich, high-value series of conversations that turn ideas into action. It is a day dedicated to helping us all better understand how and why we arrived at this point, and what we ought to do to make
it even better — for everyone.
