Attendees Provided with a Taste of Michigan
For the first time, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) will exhibit at the CoreNet Global Summit in Salt Lake City.The conference, which begins Monday, May 6, is a national gathering of corporate real estate professionals and site consultants.The MEDC participation is part of a continuous effort to promote and market Michigan as a great location for business.
“The individuals attending this conference are the key group who help make corporate expansion and location decisions,” said Doug Rothwell, president and CEO of the MEDC.“To continue to recruit businesses to Michigan, it is critical that we reach out to these individuals detailing all that the state has to offer.”
The MEDC booth will feature a video showcasing Michigan and Mackinac Island-style fudge from Kilwin’s provided as a “taste of Michigan.”Information on the state’s business climate and workforce will also be available to educate site selectors about the benefits of locating in Michigan.
The MEDC will also receive recognition from Site Selection magazine as one of the “Top Ten Economic Development Groups for 2001” at the conference.Michigan is awarded this honor as a result of the many major business expansion wins in 2001and has received this recognition for the past four years.
The CoreNet Global Summit is the first conference that the National Association of Corporate Real Estate Executives (NACORE) and Industrial Development Research Council (IDRC) are hosting jointly since the two organizations merged into CoreNet Global.Matt Cullen, general manager, General Motors EAG Enterprises, and chair of the MEDC Executive Committee is head of this group.
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation, a partnership between the state and local communities, promotes smart economic growth by developing strategies and providing services to create and retain good jobs and a high quality of life.
