Special Thanks  
to Kendall County!


The Kendall County Economic Development committee covered the cost of the booth at the event as well as the Kindle raffle prize. 


Each community rotated working the booth and we were also allowed to showcase a variety of properties.


The AIRE Trade show and Developers Showcase was well attended. This event gave us the opportunity to meet with prospective buyers/developers/investors in the industrial development industry.  



Over 50 attendees visited our booth and entered our raffle.
