Sumner County Economic Development attends KIOGA 75th Annual Convention

The Sumner County Economic Development Commission (SCEDC) attended the KIOGA 75th Annual Convention held in Wichita August 19-21.  The SCEDC had a booth on the trade show floor and was joined in the booth by Cowley First, Cowley County Economic Development and Harper County Economic Development.

 “It was a great convention for the Sumner County Economic Development Commission” stated Janis Hellard, Director.  “We were there to provide information about our county and encourage companies to consider us when deciding where to locate their business as they move into Kansas with the Mississippian Lime Play.  I was able to meet face to face with representatives of several companies I had been in contact with but had not had the opportunity to meet in person.”

Nearly 1,200 participants from oil and gas exploration and production companies, service and supply companies, financial institutions, and governmental agencies were in attendance.  There were 80 exhibitors in the exhibitor pavilion.
