TEXT OF COMMITTEE REPORTS
Committee Report #1
The Economic Development, Training and Employment Committee conducted a public meeting on Tues, Mar 20, 2012 beginning at 3:05pm in the Sullivan Chamber.

The purpose of the meeting was to receive a report on Cambridge's participation in the BIO2012 conference.

Present at the meeting were Councillor Timothy J. Toomey, Chair of the Committee; Councillor Minka vanBeuzekom; Robert W. Healy, City Manager; Brian Murphy, Assistant City Manager for Community Development (CDD); Estella Johnson, Director, Economic Development, CDD; Pardis Saffari and Chris Basler, Economic Development Division, CDD; Jason Alves, John Clifford, and Interim City Clerk Donna P Lopez.

Also present were Kelly Thompson Clark, President and CEO and Terrence Smith, Director of Government Affairs, Cambridge Chamber of Commerce; Robyn Culbertson, Executive Director, Cambridge Office of Tourism; and Charlie Marquardt, 10 Rogers Street.

Councillor Toomey opened the meeting and stated the purpose. An update on BIO2012 with Cambridge as a destination will be provided by the City Manager.

City Manager, Mr. Healy, gave an overview on the work thus far. The BIO2012 Conference to be held at the Boston Convention Center and will begin at noon on June 18, 2012 and end at 1:00pm on June 21, 2012. The City Council passed an order that the Cambridge participate in the BIO Conference. It is anticipated that the expense will be in the vicinity of $100,000. An appropriation for this conference requires City Council approval. This conference is essentially a trade show. Cambridge had a booth in the last conference which took place in 2007. The BIO2012 is an international conference. Cambridge will participate as part of the Massachusetts pavilion which is organized by Massachusetts Biotech. Cambridge will rent a booth. Boston and the Boston Redevelopment Authority will also have a presence at the BIO2012. The pavilion is 50 x 50 feet that will have 10-15 small desks/booths. The booth will be staffed by at all times by employees as well as with volunteers. The City will revise the website. A slide-show presentation is being prepared to run on a loop at the Mass. Pavilion focusing on biotech/life sciences community. An outside production will be prepared and will include the Office of Tourism and the Chamber of Commerce. The cost is $200 registration fee for the trade show per attendee and $1100 per attendee for the full conference. The registration fee is not transferable. The value of attending the conference is the networking opportunity.

On Tues, June 19th Cambridge will host an exclusive CEO event at the Broad Institute. Cambridge is working in conjunction with Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology to enlist attendance at this event by Nobel Laureates from each university. The event will be invitation only to CEO's. Fewer than 100 will be invited. There are 49 local CEO and invitation will be sent to international CEO's. Greetings from the City will be offered by the Mayor. A flash drive with a logo will be loaded with biotech company maps, Cambridge Dining Guide, maps of Cambridge and Kendall Square and a housing brochure. Ms. Johnson explained that when she attends conferences she hands out information with the "Facts about Cambridge". However she is asked to send this information electronically so the flash drive will be a good method to transmit this information. It is small, can be put into a pocket for review at a later time. The flash drives will last beyond the conference. Mr. Healy estimated that the cost for 1,000 flash drives would be in the area of $5,000. Information about a "tech crawl" will be available at the booth.

Brian Murphy, Assistant City Manager for Community Development, explained that the only free night for the conference attendees is June 19, 2012 and the feedback received is to make the June 19th event less formal. He suggested inviting key Cambridge landowners and reaching out to the international companies attending the conference.

Councillor vanBeuzekom asked about transportation. Mr. Healy responded that the City will not be providing transportation. Ms. Johnson suggested validating parking. Councillor Toomey suggested that the MBTA schedule be provided.

Councillor vanBeuzekom asked what our goal for presence at this conference is. Mr. Healy responded Cambridge is the "Innovation Capital of Massachusetts" and to have a presence to do networking.

This encourages an East Coast presence for Bio Tech Companies. Cambridge's absence from BIO2012 conference would be noticed. Ms. Johnson added collaborators want to collaborate with Cambridge companies.

Kelly Thompson Clark, President and CEO, Cambridge Chamber of Commerce, stated this conference is a Cambridge marketing presence. Cambridge is the Mecca for biotech and life sciences together with all the community benefits of being in Cambridge. It is important to list Cambridge as a destination place.

Councillor Toomey added that Cambridge's reputation speaks for itself. He read recently that in Texas 3-6 new companies were from Cambridge. Cambridge is welcoming and we want companies to come here to do business.

Mr. Healy informed the committee that Ms. Johnson's presence at conferences is a constant presence for Cambridge. The National League of Cities Conference will be held in Boston in the fall and has not had any dealings with Cambridge.

A discussion arose about who would attend the conference and knowledgeable persons, other than staff, to staff the booth. It was suggested that elected officials would be an asset to staff the booth to talk about what is done in the community. Staffing the booth will be worked out stated Mr. Healy.

Councillor Toomey suggested that a letter be sent inviting elected officials and seeking their assistance to staff the booth.

Ms. Johnson cautioned that competition among agencies will be great. Cambridge's event has to be the type of event that CEO's want to attend; it must be upscale.

At this time Councillor Toomey opened the meeting to public comment.

Charlie Marquardt, 10 Rogers Street, urged the City to do more and to spend more if needed.

Councillor Toomey stated that a follow-up meeting would be held in one month.

Councillor Toomey thanked all those present for their attendance.

The meeting adjourned at 3:50pm.

For the committee,
Councillor Timothy J. Toomey, Jr., Chair
