What People Are Saying About HDO’s “Discover the Difference”
“As a long time observer of the economic and political nuances of our region, I applaud the High Desert Opportunity Board of Directors for forging a new path by moving their valuable conference down to Rancho Cucamonga where it can more easily be attended by the many Southern California companies that could find serious competitive advantages in locating in the High Desert. This includes new and expanding businesses in sectors like manufacturing, logistics, and real estate. The conference offers an opportunity to meet with principals in these fields so they may capitalize on High Desert business opportunities. Branching out after 35 years and bringing the conference to a centralized Inland Empire location is a sound business move as it brings the event closer to prospective partners.”

“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”
