Downtown Spokane is offering a double-barrelled program for its annual meeting, which starts at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 17.
It will be at the Spokane Convention Center exhibition hall.
Renowned speaker and consultant Roger Brooks, founder and CEO of Destination Development International, will talk about how Spokane can showcase its distinctive urban features, beyond the now-obvious "Near Nature, Near Perfect" marketing approach.
The second topic will cover how Avista Utilities and the City of Spokane have begun collaborating on efforts to build a energy future that includes sustained cost savings, respect for the environment and enhanced quality of life, according to a program note.
To register, go to DowntownSpokane.net. Registration is $30 in advance before Feb. 10, $35 at the door.
