Friends of the Gateway Region,
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year as the full force of nature's colorful return makes it presence known. I feel the same way about economic development activity. Business growth and prosperity is being cultivated by hard-working folks working together for the common good. Activity is up more than ever before.
Your VGR Team continued to be busy with prospects, even spending entire days touring them around some of our top sites. We participated in the Site Selection Consultants Forum in Virginia Beach with the Virginia Economic Developers Association. Additionally during the month, we were excited to host a number of national consultants as we showcased the region’s pharmaceutical cluster and all of its supporting players. And finally, we are grateful that so many partners came out to meet our local elected officials at CCAM (see photo above). Economic Development is a team sport and May was no exception!
If you are an investor, we look forward to hosting you at DroneUp at Richard Bland College this month.
I wish you all the best during these last days of Spring.
