Governor Matt Mead will kick off the 2018 Governor's Business Forum, which takes place November 13-15 at the Little America Hotel and Resort in Cheyenne. This year's forum focuses on how Wyoming can chart a new course by pioneering technology frontiers, pursuing international trade and looking for ways to revolutionize the way the state does business. The Wyoming Business Alliance and the Wyoming Heritage Foundation will co-host the Governor's Business Forum. The 2018 forum includes nationally recognized speakers such as best-selling author and tech pioneer Michael Rogers, national fiscal experts Katherine Barrett and Richard Greene and author Sam Western.
