Practicing Excellence in Economic Development for More Than 40 Years

Founded in 1983, the Roanoke Regional Partnership is dedicated to connecting businesses to the resources they need to relocate or expand in the Roanoke Region. Representing the counties of Alleghany, Botetourt, Franklin, and Roanoke; cities of Covington, Roanoke, and Salem; and the town of Vinton, the Partnership is a joint venture among the eight governments and more than 200 private sector businesses committed to spreading the word about all the natural and human resources the Roanoke Region has to offer.

When our partners win, our community wins. To date, the partnership has facilitated the investment of $2.4 billion in the region and has seen the creation of over 20,000 jobs. We were honored to assist on projects like Stik Pak, Traditional Medicinals, Mack Trucks, and Eldor Corporation, to name just a few.

The Roanoke Region is one of the best outdoor communities in the United States. The Partnership created Roanoke Outside to showcase the region’s incredible natural and outdoor recreation assets, making it a place where businesses want to locate and where people want to live. Roanoke Outside manages a portfolio of brand-building events that include the Blue Ridge Marathon, GO Outside Festival (GO Fest), and Go Cross Cyclocross Race.

We’re committed to providing world-class service to our customers including responsive, accurate answers to all your questions and custom research ranging from labor supply, talent, costs, educational resources, and more.
