A discussion with the Lowcountry’s municipal mayors

Join us for a special event to open the North Charleston Business Expo. Along with networking and breakfast, we’ll have a discussion with several of the region’s mayors: Greg Habib, Keith Summey and John Tecklenburg. We’ll examine how their municipalities have bounced back from some of the residual impacts of the pandemic as they look toward the future, focusing on rooftops, retail, traffic and transition.

Sponsored by Charleston County Economic Development, Charleston Southern University, Coldwell Banker Commercial Atlantic, Doctors Care, HLA, MASC, NewsRadio 94.3 WSC and Segra.
