This one-evening program will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 22, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Gettysburg Campus of HACC, located at 731 Old Harrisburg Road, in the Robert C. Hoffman Room. Refreshments will be served.
Analysis of industry data has revealed top target growth sectors that can be expanded and supported by Adams County's current cultural and economic elements. One of those sectors is tourism - the first subject in a series of meetings with businesses in and around Adams County.
The first program, focusing on tourism, will include a panel discussion featuring:
- Bill Geist of Zeitgeist Consulting, a firm specializing in strategic planning, governance, marketing and legislative issues for destination marketing organizations, tourism-related chambers of commerce, economic development organizations and communities. Geist will focus on what communities, such as Adams County, need to stay competitive in the future.
- Eric Vranich of Wm. F. Hill and Assoc. to discuss methods and considerations when navigating the municipal approvals process.
- Nimesh Shah of As One Management Inc. to present the best practices for expanding and developing new business in Adams County.
The panel discussion is hosted by the Advantage Adams partners - the Adams County Economic Development Corporation, the County of Adams, Destination Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Adams Chamber of Commerce.
The next forum, which is to be held in September, will focus on manufacturing.
