The summit is expected to attract 500 people from across the country, who will play in a golf tournament on Oct. 6 and then attend business development seminars and sessions and a business trade show at the casino and hotel.

Tribal leaders, elected officials, top CEOs and established or aspiring Native American business owners will share ideas at the conference.

“The National Center’s regional Reservation Economic Summits have been very successful, and we are looking forward to bringing American Indian enterprise development to Wisconsin and the Great Lakes Region,” said Gary Davis, National Center president and CEO. “RES Wisconsin is the latest National Center event designed to create and expand business opportunities for Native Americans and their businesses from coast to coast.”
