MONTREAL, Sept. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - The International Economic Development
Council (IEDC) has presented a General Purpose Brochure award to Montréal
International at its Annual Conference, which took place in Phoenix, Arizona,
September 16-19, 2007.
"Economic development efforts have always played a vital role in shoring
up North America's economy, one locality at a time," said Ronnie L. Bryant,
IEDC chairman. "As we continue to face the challenge of flourishing in an
ever-changing and increasingly competitive marketplace, these efforts have
taken on an even greater importance. The award serves as a salute to
pacesetting organizations like Montréal International for leading the charge."
Competing in the category of General Purpose Brochure by organizations
serving areas with populations exceeding 200,000, Montréal International was a
clear standout. The information kit called Joining Forces. Aiming for Success,
which includes a corporate brochure and a set of 14 promotional fact sheets,
was produced to respond to a very specific need expressed by Montréal
International's team. In attracting foreign investment and approaching
international organizations, prospectors are able to rely on communications
tools that effectively promote the benefits of setting up in Montréal, as well
as the services that Montréal International provides.
The International Economic Development Council (IEDC) is headquartered in
Washington, DC. Its mission is to provide leadership and excellence in
economic development for communities, members and partners. IEDC's
professional economic development awards annually recognize excellence in the
economic development profession.
