This column is sponsored by BizLaunch, a division of Arlington Economic Development.
In its second seminar in the series “Return on Creativity: An Arlington Asset”, Arlington Economic Development partners once more with American Advertising Federation (AAFDC) and Virginia Tech Research Center to tap the intersection and impact of creatives in the business community.
The June 28 session will draw on digital, media and creative companies who are changing the face of the area’s decades long work with government clients.
Once largely dependent on the federal government, the increase of private and commercial businesses moving into Arlington have attracted and seeded a new crop of creative and digital companies in the area.
Hear from industry leaders about the increase in creative reputation and business solutions being offered to these companies.
The ROC series will offer networking opportunities, first-hand insights and compelling evidence that Arlington is an accelerator to personal and organizational growth and prosperity. Learn about the companies that are improving the area’s creative reputation and earning new business from a variety of consumer companies.
