2nd Annual North Fulton Opportunity Outlook
The Next Generation
Join the Council for Quality Growth and the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce for a half-day forum with stakeholders, developers, economists, and leadership from local and state agencies to explore North Fulton’s development opportunities.

This year's theme is The Next Generation. We will dive into what that means for topics such as technology, healthcare, education/workforce development, “Millennials”, etc. Speakers and panelists will provide insight into what it takes to take a community from being good to great.

This informative event will define the impact of the ongoing projects, emerging areas for growth and what is next for North Fulton.

About the Venue - Computer Museum of America

A “retired” CompUSA computer department store in Roswell serves as the temporary home to one-of-a-kind exhibits culled from one of the top vintage computer collections in the world and is available as an event venue with personality.  

The 7,600 sq. ft. PC display travels in time from the present to what is said to be the very first personal computer, the Kenbak-1.  The PC exhibit features crowns of personal computing such as the TRS-80 and Commodore PET as well as the stories and exhibits of the big names such as IBM, Microsoft and Gates.  

For more information, visit computermuseumofamerica.com.  The museum is located in Kings Market Center, 1425 Market Boulevard, Suite 200, Roswell, GA, 30076.
