LVEDC’s Annual Meeting focuses on the Lehigh Valley’s economy, which emerged in 2022 stronger than ever. Every indicator – including jobs, labor force size, and economic output – shows that the region has recovered from recent economic shocks and is exceeding previous high points.
Nearly 60 companies announced or completed projects to locate or expand operations in the Lehigh Valley in 2022. The regional economy is again led by manufacturing, with more than $8 billion in output. The population is growing, particularly among people ages 18 to 34, and becoming more diverse.
The 2023 Annual Meeting will be LVEDC’s first in-person Annual Meeting in four years. Video highlights of the 2022 virtual Annual Meeting can be found on LVEDC’s YouTube channel.
