Receive, consider and act upon an Amendment to The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership Service Agreement (C-2018-0206A);
Over the last five years, instrumental funding from The Woodlands Township has allowed The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership (EDP) to participate in the Greater Houston Partnership's (GHP) Opportunity Houston Program. Through this active participation, The Woodlands Township has increased its exposure to key site selectors and high-level business and civic leaders from around the world.
The Greater Houston Partnership has decided to not pursue another Opportunity Houston program with corporate partners for 2019; however, they will continue with a regional economic development allies program with their Economic Development & Trade group. The Woodlands Township, through The Woodlands Area EDP, can still align with the GHP in direct marketing opportunities for The Woodlands Township, comparable to last year.
Here are a few examples in 2018 where The Woodlands Township was promoted as a strong corporate headquarters location:
Bio International Convention in Boston, MA
Co-hosted Chinese Delegation
Offshore Technology Conference (OTC)
Business Recruitment Mission to Chicago, IL
Co-hosted Site Consultant Familiarization Tour
South America Trade Mission
Super Bowl Kickoff Reception
Funds from this marketing approach, not to exceed $20,000 over the 2019 timeframe, would be allotted to promote The Woodlands as an ideal place for corporation relocation.
Approve an Amendment to The Woodlands Area Economic Development Partnership Service Agreement to participate in Greater Houston Partnership marketing programs at a level of $20,000 during 2019.
