Wrap-Up: A Message From Your Co-Chairs

The Roseville Area Chamber of Commerce’s Roseville 2018 held on May 3, 2018, was launched @theGrounds (formerly Placer Valley Fairgrounds). Over 500 attendees and 50 vendors enjoyed the networking and showcasing their businesses in the newly renovated venue. We are grateful to David Attaway, CEO of Placer Valley Tourism and his team for their support of hosting the area’s largest annual business and networking event.

We achieved several goals for this year’s event, including launching a robust digital/social/PR platform (, digital outreach + analytics, Facebook live, pre-event and day-of media interviews).
We brought together subject matter experts who shared perspectives about what’s currently trending with business, industries, and technology. Key insights were also shared about future trends that will influence the momentum of business and industry growth in Roseville and across the region.

Bringing any event to life takes time, dedication, and excellent planning. We are fortunate to have had the privilege of being part of an outstanding team. Your talents, expertise, enthusiasm and positive spirits made our time together both productive and fun. Many thanks to:
