South Dakota business leaders and elected officials are set to come together next month in Sioux Falls to discuss how the coronavirus has affected businesses in the state.
The University of South Dakota Beacom School of Business is inviting U.S. Sen. John Thune and top executives from some of the state’s biggest employers to speak at a conference from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 14 at the Hilton Garden Inn-Downtown.
The event is called “Business Implications of COVID-19: Challenges and Opportunities for South Dakota.”
“We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected South Dakota businesses big and small,” Venky Venkatachalam, dean of the Beacom School of Business, said in a statement. “This conference will identify the challenges various sectors of the South Dakota economy have faced, how they weathered these challenges and how they have created new opportunities that will last beyond the pandemic.”
Organizers are limiting seating to encourage social distancing and also offering virtual attendance. More information is available online at usd.edu/businessimplications.
