Tuesday, July 19th | 6:00 – 8:00pm | Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center
Emerging Columbia is a collaborative series hosted by COR and EngenuitySC. The goal is to deliver knowledge and excitement about the new and innovative things happening in our region (Bull Street Developments, Riverfront Access Developments, etc..) and increase the momentum that continues to propel the Midlands forward.
The next installment of Emerging Columbia will feature the exponential growth we’ve all seen developing in the Vista. From new coffee shops to new bars and restaurants to a new event venue, the Vista is transforming into a people focused powerhouse and we want to know why and what’s coming next. What do the movers and shakers behind the developments have in store for us and what can we do to help create the Vista we want to see?
JOIN US on July 19th as we explore these questions and get the answers from the top dogs behind the planning and execution of the Vista developments.
We will gather at the CMCC for networking and light refreshments at 6:00pm. A panel lead discussion will begin at 6:30pm and we’ll open it up for questions from the audience around 7:10pm. At 7:30pm, we’ll break back out into open networking and a chance to chat about all of the new, exciting and possibly challenging next steps to continue the growth of the Vista.
Our panelists include:
  • Sammy Hendrix, Midlands Authority for Conventions, Sports & Tourism Board
  • Scott Garvin, Garvin Design Group
  • Trae Judy, Music Farm Productions
  • Meredith Atkinson, Vista Guild


This event is free for COR members and $10 for general admission. RSVP here
