LVEDC Showcases Testimonial Videos from Lehigh Valley Business Leaders

By Colin McEvoy on March 21, 2018

The Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC) shared a lot of good news about the regional economy during its 2018 LVEDC Annual Meeting earlier this month.

But when it comes to spreading the word about the Lehigh Valley, we don’t want you to just take our word for it.

Throughout the meeting, LVEDC played a series of 20-second videos featuring business leaders from throughout the Lehigh Valley, discussing the benefits and economic assets of the region that have helped lead them to success.

The speakers included representatives from B Braun Medical Inc., City Center Lehigh Valley, JLL, Just Born, Lehigh Valley Health Network, St. Luke’s University Health Network, and Victaulic.

Among the topics they discussed were the region’s excellent health care system, strong workforce, colleges and universities, low cost of living, well-developed transportation infrastructure, and more.

The videos, which were filmed by the Lehigh Valley-based FireRock Productions, can be viewed at the LVEDC YouTube channel and found below:
