Anyone interested in promoting Northeast Missouri is invited to attend a special event in February in Jefferson City. The event has been dubbed “Fall In Love With Northeast Missouri”. The theme of the event was suggested by First District State Representative Craig Redmon. Redmon is promoting the event by contacting legislators expected to be in attendance.
The event will be held in the Capitol Plaza Hotel in Jefferson City Monday February 13th.
Macon County Economic Development Director Denise Bennett is coordinating the event. Bennett was the featured speaker at yesterday’s Scotland County Rotary meeting, where Bennett talked about the event and what her office can do for anyone interested in bringing small businesses to their community….
“Fall In Love With Northeast Missouri” is an event patterned after “Greater Northwest Missouri Days” in Jefferson City.
14 communities will be showcased at the event, and representatives from those communities will have the chance to showcase what their communities offer to Missouri legislators, and discuss legislative priorities as they relate to economic development in our area.
Booth space is full at the event, which will showcase a number of businesses from counties including Scotland, Schuyler, Clark, Adair, Knox, Lewis, Macon, Marion, Randolph, Chariton, Ralls, Monroe and Montgomery counties.
Registration for the event is $25.00, with registrations due by February 1st by contacting Denise Bennett, Macon County Economic Development Director at 660-385-5627, or by e-mail at email@example.com.
