The Summit will provide you with the opportunity to hear keynote speakers, meet special guests; including members of The Oakland Raiders, and Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, as well as discuss the fine points of proposed Coliseum City. We will also discuss in detail, the benefits to our local businesses of keeping our Teams in Oakland, and this will be a great way to network and promote your business as well.
