"Our goal is to develop a global brand that creates the image of Orlando as a unique and dynamic business location in the minds of our target audiences." - Ken Potrock, Regional Branding Committee Chair
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
The Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission (EDC), the region’s lead economic development organization, is asking the public for their input on Orlando’s new business brand.
On behalf of the EDC, Ken Potrock, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Disney Vacation Club and Adventures by Disney, is chairing the Regional Branding Committee, a group of more than 20 local branding experts in the region who are leading the effort to identify and create a stronger business brand for the region.
Potrock said, “Our goal is to develop a global brand that creates the image of Orlando as a unique and dynamic business location in the minds of our target audiences.”
Through an online survey system managed by Grass Roots America, the EDC is seeking input from residents on how they feel about living in the region, their awareness of businesses and industry in the area and what they feel could make this a better place to call home.
The survey, located at http://www.OrlandoEDC.com/survey, is online now.
The EDC recently announced that Anson-Stoner, a Winter Park, Fla.-based creative agency, was selected to develop Orlando’s business brand. Once the research is complete, Anson-Stoner will utilize the research in conjunction with research from site location consultants and executives (both in- and out-of-market) about their perceptions of Orlando as a business location to develop a business brand for the region.
The roll out of the business brand is intended for early next year.
