Houston County Holds First Economic Development Summit

Article by: Sam Whitehead

Earlier this year Houston County held its first annual Economic Development Summit in La Crescent, MN. Businesses were invited from around the county to attend the conference. Pizza was served from a local pizzeria and good cheer pervaded the air as the Summit commenced. Presentations on social media marketing for both businesses and communities were presented at the event. In addition to the presentations on marketing, the Houston County EDA had another treat in store for those who attended. Mr. Don Weber of Logistics Health Incorporated was gracious enough to attend the event as a guest speaker to tell his story of growing a successful business in Houston County as well as provide insight to how others may do the same. The County also presented on programs they had to offer new businesses as well as those looking to expand. Overall the entire event was a huge success. Plans are in the works for another economic development summit early next spring as we look forward to another great year.
