As always its great to see a reasonable response like yours.
I would say to you however that you are using a touristy type event (Azalea festival) to try to attract manufacturing jobs to a city. Most tourists however are either vacationing or retired.
Do we not want to attract businesses through like minded events? Why is Majure Rhett here saying we need to do something when in fact there may be a business expo or a widget convention in Las Vegas.
It would seem to me that the best way to attract outside company's to come HERE would be to go where those outside company's are - no? Any sort of plan to attract businesses here has to be done with the thought that we would have to go to them to present the city and county - not rely on a flower festival to HOPEFULLY attract them here.
If I'm CEO of Widget Corp and I go to Disney World with my grand kids I'm NOT meeting with downtown groups or the Chamber. Why do we rely on them possibly coming to us?
