MYRTLE BEACH REGIONAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION
WINS INDUSTRY AWARD
August 8, 2012 – Myrtle Beach, S.C. – The Southern Economic Development Council (SEDC)
presents the MBREDC with the “Award of Superior” at their annual meeting, held at the
Marriott Grande Dunes, Tuesday, August 7, 2012.
This years SEDC conference was held right here in Myrtle Beach giving our organization to
show off our area and all that we have to offer. Each year members of the SEDC are
encouraged to submit innovative marketing materials for awards. Earlier this year the
MBREDC submitted a brochure, marketing our aviation industry and assets. The brochure
focused on ITAP, the International Technology and Aerospace Park.
The brochure won the “Award of Superior” for the Special Purpose Brochure – Large
Division. It focused on the seven reasons why ITAP is the perfect location for an aviation
related business to relocate or open in Horry County, within ITAP.
“We are so excited to win this award for the ITAP marketing piece. We took a lot of time
and had a great team to help develop this unique marketing tool. The brochure went to key
site selection leaders and companies in the aviation industry over the last year. We are
happy to say we always get a great response to the mailer. And, we are already working on
next years materials and hope to win a few more awards with the SEDC,” commented
MBREDC President and CEO, Brad Lofton.
