The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) has honored the Brazos Valley Economic Development Corporation for promotion of and recruitment for its private investor group.
As announced at IEDC's Annual Conference in Oklahoma City, the BVEDC is a Gold Award winner in the 2022 Excellence in Economic Development Awards. The win came in the Print Brochure category for a BVEDC piece spotlighting Invest Brazos Valley.
Bryan Creative Group (BCG) based in the City of Bryan designed the collateral in conjunction with the BVEDC. The winning material is one of a number of pieces BCG has created with the BVEDC, with more content in development to best spotlight the Brazos Valley.
"Our work with Bryan Creative Group has paid dividends very quickly, and this award from IEDC is a welcome recognition of this partnership and the quality of its output," said BVEDC President/CEO Matt Prochaska. "We appreciate being honored and look forward to continued, productive work on behalf of the community with this local company."
This is the second time in three years IEDC has honored the BVEDC. In 2020's Excellence in Economic Development Awards, the BVEDC's series of videos with College Station-based Texas FilmWorks spotlighting the region's advantages earned a Gold Award for Multimedia/Video Promotion.
Invest Brazos Valley is the private sector's voice in the BVEDC's efforts to launch, grow and locate business in the region. Nearly 100 companies from a wide range of industries serving the community make up IBV's membership. Having seen significant growth since 2018, the group now has the largest annual commitment of any BVEDC funding partner.
