2015 was a great year for Horry County. We announced some great new companies like Worksman Cycles, Little Spider Creations, & Star Life Safety. Your MBREDC team laid a lot of groundwork for future successes by building relationships and marketing to companies and executives across the globe. These relationships will continue to be fostered and ultimately may lead to future announcements.
Our focus in 2016 will be to continue to build new relationships by reaching out to potential industries. We will also focus a greater amount of time with our existing industries. Finally, we will strive to provide a greater return on investment to our members through education, networking, and event marketing.
Here is a quick visual of our business recruitment & expansion efforts thus far for 2016.
