Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority Hosts Annual Appreciation Lunch for Regional Project Managers


MACON, Ga. — Today, the Macon-Bibb County Industrial Authority (MBCIA) hosted a Holiday Appreciation Lunch at the Georgia Experience Center in Atlanta bringing in economic development project managers from across the state. This annual event provides MBCIA with the opportunity to gather with regional project managers to express their appreciation and share the latest developments in their WHY MACON presentation.

Exhibiting several key attractions in Macon, the presentation provided a robust look at the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historic Park, the new Macon Amphitheatre, set to open in Spring 2024, and details about MBCIA’s properties available to prospective industries.

“Opportunities to come together and show our immense appreciation for the economic development leadership across Georgia give me great satisfaction, shares Stephen Adams, Executive Director of MBCIA. “Highlighting the beauty and progress of Macon never gets old for me. The Macon advantage is a real thing for industries and residents alike, and Macon-Bibb County does not slow down in revitalizing and investing in our community to continue to offer world-class business opportunities.”
