BINGHAMTON, NY - The New York State Economic Development Council has awarded the Greater Binghamton Coalition, the Broome County Industrial Development Agency and the Broome County Economic Development Department with a 1st place award recognizing their efforts to promote the region.
At the recent NYSEDC Annual Conference in Cooperstown, NY, the NYSEDC announced its 2008 Marketing Award winners. The three local agencies won first place recognition in the multi-media category for their DDR marketing presentation.
DDR stands for Data Disaster Recovery. The multi-media presentation can be viewed at www.greaterbinghamton.com as well as www.bcida.com. It was produced to help promote our region and to attract the attention of financial institutions in the New York City metropolitan region looking for areas outside of NYC for their potential backup data operations.
Students enrolled in Angelo Mastrangelo's class at Binghamton University also assisted with this project by doing the initial research on which some of the information in the presentation is based.
In addition to being posted on area websites, the presentation is also being marketed directly to companies through direct mail and is being featured at “Business Continuity” conferences in New York City and San Diego, California.
Greater Binghamton has hundreds of thousands of square feet available for data backup centers as well as parallel data center operations. Three large campuses in our community are the focus of the DDR presentation; L-3 in Kirkwood, Huron in Endicott and Glendale in the Town of Union.
“We have the facilities, we have the technology backbone, we are affordable and we are within reach,” said Executive Barbara J. Fiala. “We just need to make these companies aware of all that we have to offer and that is what we are hoping to accomplish with this presentation.”
The NYSEDC judges reviewed each entry for overall creativity and impact, appropriateness of message and presentation of information. Greater Binghamton competed against other communities across New York State for the Multi-Media award.
