“GPLEX and its network provides an expansive opportunity for people to embrace learning from a diverse group of innovators and stakeholders. It is for people who are curious how others approach a challenge and opportunity and are willing to move outside one’s comfort zone.  My first experience in Philadelphia, my hometown, opened my eyes to the breath of strategic approaches to a myriad of issues that impact Philadelphia and its people. GPLEX challenges assumptions about what drives an economy, a community, or a region. GPLEX is an opportunity to refresh friendships, meet new people who may not circulate in your professional sphere, and experience and learn about another city and its community. The conference provides protected space away from the everyday office and life to discover and have fun. GPLEX connects the dots.”
