Site Selection Magazine Captures Spirit of the Dayton Region in New Intelligence Report

Sep 14, 2019 | News, Newsletter

Connect. Innovate. Grow. We believe those words embody the heart of the Dayton Region. The connections among our people and companies drive the innovation that fuels our growth. Every day, we see incredible stories of hard-won success and the passion that drives our communities.

We’re thrilled to share those stories with you in the July edition of Site Selection Magazine’s Dayton Intelligence Report. Managing Editor Adam Bruns explores our region’s growth, featuring projects such as The Dayton Arcade, onMain, and Fuyao. The section highlights the work of the community’s young professionals through UpDayton, as well as the opportunities available through the region’s many Opportunity Zones. Bruns also chronicles OneFifteen, the unique partnership among our local health care providers and Verily to change the way opioid addiction is treated.

Since the DDC began in 1994 as the Miami Valley Economic Development Coalition, our region fought back from a major recession, Wright-Patt has doubled in size to more than 29,000 people, and our regional economy has strengthened and diversified.

Our community has come to define collaboration and partnership. When we work together, we make our own success, and that makes for a compelling story. Thank you to all our partners who told their stories, contributed their voices and allowed us to share their story with the world.
