Marketing Palm Beach County as a Premier Business Destination
The BDB currently has an advertisement campaign targeting CEOs in the northeast. The ads showcase Life Sciences, A/A/E, Business/Financial Services, and Manufacturing. The ads have appeared in Quest magazine with a circulation of 84,000 and Greenwich magazine with a circulation over 60,000. Both publications reach high net worth households and provide value-added advantages including editorials and digital components.
Strengthening Partnerships Between Business and Education
Education is the key to solid economic development and a vibrant future economy. Therefore, the BDB created the Academic Leaders Council, comprised of education leaders, to help strengthen partnerships between businesses and educators. During their meetings for example, the council has interacted with business executives in key industry clusters and discussed ways to expand internship program opportunities in a collaborative effort.
