Civic and business leaders are looking for ways to help spur new business growth in the East Contra Costa region, with an emphasis on the importance of working together regionally rather than as individual cities.
As part of the effort, a summit called EC2 The Collaborative will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the Antioch Community Center, 4703 Lone Tree Way.
The event will include exhibits highlighting successful local businesses, networking opportunities, speakers and breakout sessions allowing attendees to contribute ideas.
The free event includes lunch.
