According to Executive Director Bill Walters, his recent trip to Las Vegas alongside Commissioner King and other law enforcement officers to the annual Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show (Jan. 17- 20th) was a big success. Not only did Walters attend the annual SHOT Show, but he also made an appearance at the World of Concrete Show (Jan. 17-19) — an annual event to connect and educate buyers and sellers. The end goal of the trip was to bring even more economic opportunities to Delaware County.
After the end of the week, ECI Regional Planning District was able to secure a total of six economic development leads for the county between the two events. At least two of these leads have followed up with ECIRPD for tours of Delaware County. These leads have the potential to bring even more economic diversity to East Central Indiana as their organization’s base locations range from Ohio and California to France, Canada, and Turkey.
