Checkered Flag Goes Down on Successful Weekend
The Southern Virginia Regional Alliance with the support of Lt Governor Bill Bolling, and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) got their first regional marketing effort started at Martinsville Speedway. The Southern Virginia Regional Alliance is a partnership championed by the LT Governor that includes Halifax, Henry, Patrick and Pittsylvania counties as well as the cities of Martinsville and Danville.
The effort, that included 10 invited site selection companies as well as companies that are looking to expand or relocate operations, showcased the southern region of Virginia over the weekend of October 22 through the 25. It also included a presentation on the workforce, regional assets such as industrial parks and shell buildings, education and quality of life.
