For the first time ever, HDO will take its highly-successful event on the road. On Thursday, October 20, 2016, HDO will host “Discover the Difference” at the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center in Rancho Cucamonga. Discover the Difference is a streamlined presentation that will make it more convenient for attendees from outside the High Desert to learn about the region’s business-friendly atmosphere, and why it is the perfect place for relocation or expansion. Business and community leaders are excited for the new event. Victorville city manager Doug Robertson said, “I firmly believe if we are attempting to market our region to businesses in the Los Angeles basin we must go to them, making it convenient, engaging, and compelling.” In addition to the new format, the traditional High Desert Opportunity large-scale event will take place in 2017.
