Last month, Knoxville-Oak Ridge Innovation Valley released the third edition of the Innovation Valley Economic Development Guide, produced in partnership with Conway, Inc., publishers of Site Selection magazine.
The economic profile is a digital and print publication utilized as a marketing tool to promote Innovation Valley’s business climate in both domestic and international markets. This multimedia magazine spotlights the region through detailed reporting and analysis of trends, success stories of regional business growth and expansion and an analysis of Innovation Valley’s competitive advantages.
The profile also details the regional partners that make up Innovation Valley: Anderson County Economic Development Agency, Blount Partnership, Knoxville Chamber, Loudon County Economic Development Agency, City of Oak Ridge, Roane Alliance and Tellico Reservoir Development Agency.
“One of the strategic priorities of our Innovation Valley efforts is to tell our region’s business story,” said Doug Lawyer, vice president of economic development for the Knoxville Chamber. “This publication does an excellent job in conveying the key selling points of the Innovation Valley region to both internal and external business location consultants and decision makers.
“We have already direct shipped this publication to 5,000 C-level executives across the nation in select industry sectors that can benefit from our location, as-sets, workforce and overall quality of life.”
