The City of Frederick has changed dramatically in the last 20 years – growing from a sleepy small town to the second largest city in the State. Frederick now stands as the third point in a powerful economic triangle that traces to Washington D.C. and Baltimore.

Home to over 3,500 companies, the City has already experienced an explosion of private investment and continues to cause a stir among commercial developer and business communities alike. Join us for a lunch discussion led by local industry leaders, where we’ll explore how Frederick has become an attractive marketplace to so many; followed immediately by a Downtown walking tour to discover the opportunities of tomorrow.
