The Idaho Rural Success Summit is back for a third year!

The Idaho Rural Success Summit will take place May 1 and 2, 2024 in Fort Hall, Idaho at the Shoshone-Bannock Hotel. This will be a day-and-a-half-long event.

The summit is centered around spotlighting successful examples of rural community development, through lightning-round presentations, engaging panel discussions, keynote speakers and fostering networking opportunities as well as information sharing through a resource fair. 

The event will be conducted in partnership with the Idaho Rural Partnership, Idaho Department of Commerce, USDA Rural Development Idaho, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and U.S. Small Business Administration, among many others.

Last year, Idaho Commerce co-hosted two Idaho Rural Success Summits with USDA Rural Development, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and the Idaho Women’s Business Center.

Both events, held in Twin Falls and Weiser respectively, each attracted around 300 community leaders, economic developers, business owners and other stakeholders.
