The Culture of Business
Congrats to our partners, the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation!
The San Antonio Economic Development Foundation (SAEDF) received a Silver Excellence in Economic Development Award from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) during the IEDC Annual Conference on Tuesday, October 2 in Houston, Texas.
SAEDF’s award recognizes the reinvigoration of the organization’s website in the category of General Purpose Website for communities with populations of greater than 500,000. The honor was presented at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, as part of the IEDC Annual Conference.
“We recognize San Antonio Economic Development Foundation for creating innovative and successful strategies to promote economic development in this period of global recovery,” said Jay Moon, IEDC chair. “Our awards honor organizations and individuals for their efforts in creating positive change in communities. San Antonio Economic Development Foundation demonstrates that they are at the forefront of the economic development profession and are using cutting-edge, effective practices that can be replicated in other communities.”
Through years of qualitative research, the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation (SAEDF) found that companies and site location consultants were increasingly using the Internet as a primary resource for initial site location research. With that, SAEDF began a campaign to enhance the number of available resources surrounding San Antonio’s economic development opportunities by recreating and launching an entirely new website, SanAntonioEDF.com.
