In collaboration with the Office of the Governor and the Cabinet for Economic Development, this is a one-day immersive, exclusive, and unforgettable introduction to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The program includes behind-the-scenes tours of some of Kentucky’s signature industries, access to top thought leaders, and an invitation to dinner at the Governor’s Mansion.
