Bentonville's Heartland Summit scheduled for mid-April has been postponed to sometime in the fall because of concerns about the coronavirus.

The invitation-only event hosted by Heartland Forward focuses on economic growth in the central U.S.

Heartland Forward is a Walton-family-backed research institute that describes itself as a "think and do tank," with an emphasis on the "do."

Angie Cooper, Heartland Summit executive director, confirmed Friday that the event wouldn't be held this spring and that the attendees had been notified of the change.

The first Heartland Summit was held in October 2018 and the second was in April 2019 and drew about 400 participants.
