When you think of Phoenix, you think: red rocks, blue sky and of course, the golden sunshine! But the history (and future!) is as colorful as the ancient people, immigrants and settlers who shaped it. For the past 20 years, Phoenix has been consistently ranked as one of the fastest growing economies of all metro areas in the U.S. This is due to the rise of manufacturing companies and the IT industry, and a strong history in electronics and aerospace. Come experience WE Local in Phoenix, February 23-25, 2018.
