Economic Development Week Tribute:

To celebrate the 10th year of Economic Development Week in Maryland, we’re celebrating with 10 weeks of economic development! We’re using October 19-23, 2020 as a kickoff week to recognize proclamations and events, then having 9 themed weeks following our kickoff.


Economic Development Week in Maryland will emphasize to the general public the importance of economic development for the State of Maryland. The week is designed to increase an understanding of economic development’s contribution to the State’s business climate, job retention and growth, the tax base and the overall quality of life in Maryland.


Economic development will take center stage in counties, cities and towns throughout Maryland when proclamations are made heralding the significant projects that have made Maryland a great place to live, work and play. Recognizing the dedicated work of economic developers is a primary focus of the effort. Listed below are the activities planned during Economic Development Week in Maryland (check back for weekly updates to this list).
