Cornwall Ontario – Cornwall’s economy is in the spotlight when Team Cornwall hosts the popular Year in Review meeting on Wednesday December 11.
Each year Cornwall Economic Development complies a report of major investments, achievements and other positive events that has taken place over the past year. For the past 22 years, that report is released publicly via a presentation to a gathering of well over 300 businesses and community leaders. Once again the Year in Review meeting will be held at Galaxy Cinemas on Second Street. Doors will open at 7:00 a.m. and the meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m. sharp.
The Year in Review report summarizes major private and public sector development activity that has occurred in Cornwall over the past 12 months.
“We continue to see positive investment activity that is creating employment opportunities in a variety of sectors,” said Bob Peters, Manager of Cornwall Economic Development. “Existing companies are expanding and adding new technology, while at the same time we are welcoming new businesses to the city – both large and small.”
Team Cornwall has hosted the meeting since 1998, and although its members make up a large portion of the audience, the meeting is open to all. As always, the meeting is expected to attract a number of special guests from outside the region.
“We live here and yet sometimes we don’t notice that this company may have expanded, or that this company is new to the area,” says Peter Gault, Chair of Team Cornwall. “Cornwall Economic Development does an excellent job in summarizing the year’s best stories in one presentation. Everybody leaves the meeting in such a positive frame of mind. We can then take what we’ve learned and share it with people beyond the boundaries of Cornwall.”
Local Artist and Vendor Bazaar
A bazaar featuring one-of-a-kind gift ideas from over a dozen local artists and vendors will once again tempt attendees as they exit the theatre. The popular bazaar is organized by the Cornwall Business Enterprise Centre.
