Expedition Chattanooga

A 2 Day Interactive Workshop Driven by Momentum 2022

Intercity visits are a great way for community leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors to gain knowledge about innovative ideas and programs from other cities. The visit provides an opportunity for interaction among city leaders and facilitates exchange the best practices and lessons learned between two cities.

This year, Topeka will visit Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chattanooga was chosen due to its similar population, challenges and recent successes. Those who attend Expedition Chattanooga will have the opportunity to learn from local leaders about topics important to Topekans such as: Tourism, Entrepreneurship, Riverfront, Diversity & Inclusion, Education,  Young Professionals, Local Government, Community Health and more!

We anticipate an outstanding stay with a full schedule of networking, learning and exploring for attendees to enjoy. But when it comes to travel, the “getting there” can be the hardest part. The GTP would like to help you plan your trip to make getting from point A to point B as seamless as possible. So, before you book that flight to Chattanooga, check out our Expedition Chattanooga Travel Guide.
