HEAT Forum

HEAT Forum

In the early years of the state, it was the five C’s — copper, cattle, cotton, citrus and climate — that drove Arizona’s economy. In today’s new economy, it’s HEAT — healthcare, energy, aerospace and technology — that are the economic engines that fuel Arizona’s business environment. Az Business magazine will host the inaugural HEAT Forum to acknowledge the ways the healthcare, energy, aerospace and technology industries that have re-shaped Arizona’s business landscape. The forum will spotlight the developments and innovations happening in Arizona and explore how those breakthroughs are impacting the state and changing the world. The purpose is to examine how these industries will shape the state’s economy in the future.
