One measure of success is the number of contacts you make and how many business cards you collect. As you can see from the second photo, the Bay EDA met with a large number, more than 70 people, at the show!
· 16 Company Presidents / CEOs
· 40 follow-ups; follow-up with more detailed information on Bay County to these companies
· 9 contacts interested in coming to Bay County for a visit
· 2 proposals in response to “real” growth projects!
Examples of companies:
· United Technologies
· Pratt & Whitney
· GKN Aerospace
· GE Aviation
· Kellstrom Defense
· Limco Air Repair
There is no doubt that this is a key recruitment mission that will help put Bay County (airport and Port properties) on the International Aviation Map! Stay tuned!
On a side note, the Bay EDA offices are moving. Our new address is 5230 West Highway 98, Panama City at Gulf Coast State College. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn! Thanks for your continued support!
