The Scranton Plan, co-hosted by PPL Electric Utilities and Woodloch Pines Resort, welcomed more than 50 real estate brokers, consultants and site selection specialists from neighboring states to a round of golf at Glenmaura National Golf Club, followed by dinner and a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees game at PNC Field.
The goal of the festival is to introduce corporate executives and real estate professionals from neighboring states to the quality of life and business opportunities available in the Greater Scranton area.
“The Summer Festival is one of our most effective economic development marketing tools. We are able to showcase our region’s opportunities and our superior quality of life,” said Chamber president, Austin J. Burke.
Since its inception, The Scranton Plan has helped more than 350 companies relocate to Northeastern Pennsylvania and have assisted in the creation of more than 42,000 jobs. They have also worked with Chamber affiliates Lackawanna Industrial Fund Enterprise (LIFE) and the Scranton Lackawanna Industrial Building Company (SLIBCO) to develop 14 industrial, office and technology parks, providing a real estate investment of $637 million.
