We want to thank the Pro Football Hall of Fame and President and Executive Director David Baker for allowing us to make the Hall of Fame our location for Utica Upstream in April and Utica Midstream in June. Because of the revival of interest in Utica business opportunities, we have had to find a bigger venue for Utica Summit. We look forward to seeing you at the Canton area’s newest and largest hotel.
