EDA Media Campaign 14 Oct 11

The Hutchinson Economic Development Authority is beginning a “Media Campaign” aimed at getting the good word out about the city with the goal of bringing in more business.

EDA Director Miles Seppelt says most companies are looking to add second facilities to expand their businesses and Hutchinson can take advantage of that by putting Hutchinson in a positive light, which will ultimately influence businesses to expand here.

Seppelt requested that the city pay for half of the proposed $15,200 cost, with the EDA paying the other half. The city council approved that request.

Seppelt says much of the campaign will be focused through the world wide web because Seppelt says most companies researching prospective site use the internet as their main tool.

Seppelt says the campaign will put Hutchinson “on the radar” with a positive slant.
