MBREDC Annual Meeting

The Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation held its 2017 Annual Meeting on Friday, January 27, 2017 at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes.  The 180+ attendees recognized the 2016 and 2017 Board of Directors and Executive Committee members, received an update from Horry County Chairman Mark Lazarus, a 2016 Year-In-Review from MBREDC President & CEO Josh Kay, and a keynote address from SC Power Team President & CEO James Chavez.  James spoke about the need for businesses and community leaders to be involved in the economic development process through volunteering on committees and financially supporting the MBREDC.  Additionally, James spoke about the need to be prepared by having public-private partnerships in controlling and improving industrial sites, parks, and buildings.
For the second consecutive year, Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) has set a new record for passenger traffic.  Year-ending December 2016 more than 1.94 million total passengers passed through the Airport, an increase of 6.2 percent compared to 2015.  The Myrtle Beach International Airport already has flights to more nonstop markets than any other South Carolina airport and is adding more.
A team of freshmen students from the Academy for the Arts Science and Technology in Myrtle Beach is competing for a $15,000 grant for their life-saving mobile app concept.  The team won a $5,000 grant and was named one of two Best in State winners from South Carolina as part of the Verizon Innovative Learning App Challenge for its CPR Buddy mobile app.
