CONROE, TEXAS (October 7, 2022) – The Conroe Economic Development Council’s (CEDC) ‘More is Made Here’ campaign has been named a finalist for the City Nation Place Awards in the category of Best Communication Strategy: Economic Development. The CEDC is one of just seven finalists in its category and the only finalist in its category from the United States. Other finalists for the award represent The Netherlands, Denmark, Estonia, United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Lithuania.

The City Nation Place Awards celebrate and benchmark the very best in strategic thinking, marketing, and design for places. The finalists case studies include examples of creativity, innovation, and effectiveness, whether in the use of data, the application of design, the engagement of citizens, the marketing of place attractiveness for tourism and economic development, or the overall strategic approach to managing and projecting a positive reputation for cities, regions, and nations. Best Communication Strategy: Economic Development is dedicated for campaigns with the strategic aim of attracting investment or attracting talent.

A diverse, global panel of judges reviewed more than 100 entries from 70 places. The award winners will be announced at City Nation Place Global in London on November 10.

“Every year I hear from our jury members that they have been inspired by what they have read, making notes of the ideas they wished they had had—and this year’s experience is no different. It’s noticeable that we are seeing place brand and marketing organisations focus more on data, on collaboration with stakeholders, and on their place brand’s authentic values to increase the effectiveness of their work. I’d like to thank everyone who entered for sharing their work so that these Awards can continue to benchmark and celebrate excellence,” said Clare Dewhirst, Director of City Nation Place and chair of the independent Awards Jury.

“The CEDC takes great pride representing Conroe. ‘More is Made Here’ allows us to showcase that pride in a fun, creative way to detail why Conroe is a premier destination. I’m so proud of our team for their hard work and speak for them when saying that we are humbled to be considered for this award alongside outstanding global peers,” said Danielle Scheiner, CEDC Executive Director.
