According to Jim Robb, Prescott’s Economic Development Consultant, this is the first time the Arizona Technology Council has held a retreat in Prescott. 

"There will be 100 Technology CEO's in Prescott,” Robb explained. "These CEOs will have a chance to experience Prescott and the surrounding areas. The result could be other technology events being held here. Besides events, they could, relocate their business, open satellite offices and possibly hire our high school, college and university graduates in high paying technology  jobs."

"These events will have an extremely positive economic  impact on Prescott and the surrounding areas,” Robb concluded.
