Revitalization Conference

July 2021 | Virtual Conference

Every year Missouri Main Street Connection hosts a top notch statewide conference for anyone who is participating in or interested in commercial district revitalization. 

Get Plugged in... Downtown!

Our revitalization conference is a place to be inspired, make new connections and get new tools to keep your downtown vibrant and competitive in today's market. This conference is the only educational and networking event in the state of Missouri for commercial district revitalization that blends economic development, community revitalization and historic preservation that is relevant to rural, mid-sized and urban communities.

We spend months preparing for general sessions, classroom sessions, and crash courses, plus numerous networking opportunities. We also host several special events at the conference including the Evening of Excellence Awards & Dinner where we recognize excellence in revitalization with various awards presented to communities throughout the state. 

This is a conference you don't want to miss. We learn, we have fun, and we share our passions for revitalizing our treasured communities.
The 2021 conference will be virtual.
