Gov. Cox’s spring One Utah Summit is coming up May 1-2, 2023, at the Davis Conference Center in Layton. The One Utah Summit is a biannual conference that brings together the state’s top leaders in the public and private sectors. The Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity partners with the Salt Lake Chamber, Utah Office of Energy Development, and World Trade Center Utah to present the summit.

In this episode, listen to Ryan Starks, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity, Miles Hansen, chief executive officer and president of World Trade Center Utah, and Utah’s First Lady, Abby Cox. 

Starks describes how the One Utah Summit is a meaningful event for public and private business leaders and the reason for moving the location outside of the Salt Lake Valley. He details his experience on how the biannual summits changed over time and what he hopes the 2023 summit will accomplish.  

Next, Hansen explains why the summit is important to World Trade Center Utah, highlights global trade aspects that will be discussed on May 2, and discusses upcoming 2023 trade missions.

Cox shares why she created Show Up Utah and how it will be part of this year’s summit programming with opportunities for summit attendees to participate in service projects. The discussion includes Utah’s reputation as the most charitable state in the nation and the annual Show Up For Teachers conference organized by her office.
