2021 Downtown Summer Camp - Online

In July 2021, TDA will host its first ever virtual downtown summer camp!

The goal of this event is to provide affordable and accessible education to downtown professionals and champions across the state. Join us for sessions on community and economic development, small business and entrepreneurship, downtown design, and marketing.

Each week we will host two live webinars from 10:00-11:30 am. We've priced this event to work for budgets of all sizes and will provide recordings of all sessions via our summer camp platform.

Attendees will also be invited to our weekly campfire discussions and to share an idea related to the weekly theme. Campfire participants will be entered into a drawing for 2021 Texas Downtown Conference registrations.
