Twice a year, the Leesburg Economic Development Commission (EDC) invites Leesburg Small Business owners and representatives together to discuss issues relating to the local business community. Through feedback and discussion from the business community, the EDC identifies focus areas for their work. These business forums serve as a way to report on work completed the selected focus areas and to collect feedback from business owners and the community.
2018 focus areas include:
- Parking: achievable ways to make parking easier to find/use
- The Night Time Economy: leveraging Leesburg's growing food/entertainment sector
- Experiential Tourism: engaging visitors with experiences
- Business to Business/shop local: fostering local-to-local commerce
The next Small Business forum will take place on October 9th, 2018 from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. at Ida Lee Park and Recreation Center.
