Owensboro participates in Kentucky United Economic Development Mission to the Northeast

Through our partnership with KentuckyUnited, GO-EDC recently participated in a marketing mission to the northeast. The EDC joined with approximately 20 economic development professionals from throughout the Commonwealth and the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development to meet with site selectors and prospective companies in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts about the opportunities available in Kentucky.

This is the first Marketing Mission KentuckyUnited has sponsored in the northeast. The visits to over 35 companies and site selectors have increased the awareness of the state and given the EDC an opportunity to tell decision makers about Kentucky’s new incentive programs.

The meetings should result in several potential projects, some of which have a direct interest in Owensboro.

Over the next few weeks, GO-EDC will conduct further follow up marketing to these prospective companies and consultants.

Owensboro has a great story to tell and the EDC is committed to getting the word out to businesses on the opportunities available in this region!
