BEDFORD, Ind. (Oct. 10, 2017) – Radius Indiana’s economic outreach included traversing two states in three days last week to meet with site selectors and business advisers.
Radius first made a stop in Cincinnati and then traveled to Chicago to join the Indiana Economic Development Corporation’s site selector trip in an effort to raise awareness about the pro-business environment in the Hoosier state and the Radius region. For Radius, the visit adds to a series of economic development trips that it has conducted for 2017, and continues on the successful outreach program the organization began in 2016.
During the three-day journey, President and CEO of Radius Indiana Jeff Quyle shared information about the region’s assets, its logistical advantages, and interstate connectivity as well as developments in the region, particularly the new partnership involving Purdue University and WestGate@Crane Technology Park.
“Our continued outreach to neighboring states has helped make site selectors more familiar with the Radius Indiana region,” said Quyle. “By meeting with site selectors we are able to learn specifically what companies are looking for in a location, and how to best position our region to be competitive in business expansion and relocation projects.”
Radius Indiana and the region’s eight local economic development organizations will continue 2017 outreach efforts by hosting an October luncheon in Indianapolis for more than 10 area site selectors. Ensuring that decision makers know about the area’s offerings is a primary focus for the regional partnership, which represents Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, and Washington Counties.
