Please scroll down for additional information about traveling to Cleveland for INDUSTRY, including suggested accommodation.

With great enthusiasm for our beloved city of Cleveland, INDUSTRY will take here in the home of the 2016 NBA champs (sorry, this doesn’t get old for us! Lebron!) for the 3rd year in a row. Our city has a history of product innovation and manufacturing, a booming healthcare industry, a mesmerizing cultural quarter with outstanding museums and the home of our renowned orchestra, a flourishing foodie scene, and lots of beer. Join us and experience a population of young professionals, creatives, enthusiastic and eager community advocates and generations of long time loyal residents who will happily point you in the direction of their favourite local restaurant or brewery. (We weren’t named America’s Best Beer City by Condé Naste Traveler for nothing.) For more about our fine city, visit
