The High Desert Opportunity (HDO) Board of Directors is proud to announce a big addition in 2016. For the first time ever, HDO will take its highly-successful event on the road.
On Thursday, October 20, 2016, HDO will host “Discover the Difference” at the Victoria Gardens Cultural Center in Rancho Cucamonga. Discover the Difference is a streamlined presentation that will make it more convenient for attendees from outside the High Desert to learn about the region’s business-friendly atmosphere, and why it is the perfect place for relocation or expansion.
Business and community leaders are excited for the new event. Victorville city manager Doug Robertson said, “I firmly believe if we are attempting to market our region to businesses in the Los Angeles basin we must go to them, making it convenient, engaging, and compelling.”
In addition to the new format, the traditional High Desert Opportunity large-scale event will take place in 2017.

In its 35th year, High Desert Opportunity (HDO) is the premier High Desert event annually showcasing local businesses and development opportunities for new and expanding businesses. The goal of the event is to support economic growth and stability by attracting businesses and jobs to the High Desert. The region encompasses the cities of Adelanto, Apple Valley, Barstow, Hesperia and Victorville, as well as portions of San Bernardino County.
“I’ve been attending HDO for many years now and see this as a great move by the HDO group. As an active and vested commercial and industrial real estate broker in the High Desert, I know many of my clients will appreciate the short drive to Ranch Cucamonga to hear about the latest and greatest market activities that are occurring in the High Desert. Offering easy and convenient access to information and to power brokers from the High Desert is a great offering; it says ‘we’re willing to meet you half way to start the conversation’,”

“As a past presenter at High Desert Opportunities HD Theater, I am pleased that the HDO Executive Committee has chosen to take their show on the road and bring it closer to their prospective audience. Although their event in the high desert has seen much success over the 35 years since its inception, I see the opportunities for HDO to expand its offerings into the Inland Empire where it will be significantly easier for attendees to spend half a day learning about the industry market and ease of doing business in the High Desert. As a small business owner myself, I appreciate the efforts of HDO to make attending this conference as simple and time efficient as possible. I look forward to the program HDO will present in October under their new format”
– said Eric Schmidt, President of
