One Utah Summit — Cedar City

on the Campus of Southern Utah University
October 11-13, 2022


The One Utah Summit brings together the state’s best and brightest government, business, community, and nonprofit leaders twice a year to discuss Utah’s economic topics and trends. Consistent with Gov. Cox’s “One Utah Roadmap” initiative, Summit programming focuses on the roadmap’s six strategic priorities:

  1. Economic Advancement
  2. Education
  3. Rural Matters
  4. Health Security
  5. Equality and Opportunity, and
  6. Streamlining State Government

The fall One Utah Summit is hosted on the campus of Southern Utah University in Cedar City and celebrates building economic opportunity in rural Utah. 

Partners benefit from a platform to create a more unified statewide economy and contribute to dialogue surrounding the current economic environment across rural Utah and the future of Utah’s diverse business community.

A summit partnership offers opportunities to advance new ideas, promote brands, inspire leadership, interact with speakers, position products, and explore new opportunities with hundreds of summit attendees.

The One Utah Summit provides partnering organizations and sponsors a voice and representation at the state’s premier business event hosted by Gov. Cox. Partners and sponsors are leading businesses in Utah’s successful economic growth and an integral piece of Gov. Cox’s reimagined and unified vision for economic opportunity for all Utahns.

Hosted by Gov. Cox

As summit host and featured speaker, Gov. Cox delivers a reimagined vision of economic opportunity for Utah and the critical role our state’s rural communities and businesses play in making that vision a reality.

The governor also presents the annual Spirit of Southern Utah and Rural Legacy Leader Awards. The summit includes plenary presentations, breakout sessions, and discussion panels that provide an overview of Utah’s current business climate and explore some of the most influential topics impacting rural Utah.
