LITTLE FALLS, MN  –- Virtual reality for economic developers is coming to Houston, TX. This innovative technology is being used by forward-thinking communities for business and workforce attraction and participants at TEDC will witness its potential first hand. 

This revolutionary approach to economic development marketing creates a completely immersive experience that brings a community to life for potential site selectors and business owners.

The three-day conference to be held on October 18th, 19th, and 20th will feature breakout sessions, peer roundtables and numerous networking breaks for industry leaders and economic development executives.

“I thought the PlaceVR tour was very good, and this technology and service will keep getting better. Golden Shovel is the early adopter in this economic development service, and good thing, too,” said Gregg Wassmansdorf, Senior Managing Partner, Newmark Knight Frank.

Communities seeking to gain an edge in business attraction efforts, like securing Amazon HQ2, will gain an edge using immersion video.
