State Economic Developers Visit Region

The Roanoke Regional Partnership hosted a group of economic developers from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership for two days this month. The goal of the visit was to showcase the Roanoke Region’s assets for technology, service, and manufacturing companies.

Partnership staff showcased the regional narrative and business advantages of locating here to the group of project managers. The visit was designed to orient VEDP officials so that they can identify the Roanoke Region as a potential fit for businesses looking to locate in Virginia.

Thanks to TMEIC and PowerSchool for hosting our visitors.

  • The TMEIC tour highlighted a team of nearly 300 engineers and support staff developing automation control systems and motors for heavy industry.
  • The meeting with PowerSchool highlighted the Roanoke Region’s success in attracting and retaining top talent in information technology.
