AUGUST 2015, BALTIMORE, MD Henry Hanna, CCIM, SIOR, Senior Advisor with Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate recently attended the Maryland Economic Development Association (MEDA) 2015 Summer Conference in Baltimore, MD. Professionals from across the state met at the World Trade Center to discuss state and economic development. MEDA is a non-profit organization of economic development professionals that work to promote the economic well-being of Maryland by improving the state’s business climate.

The conference, which took place on July 29, was focused on Marketing and Business Attraction, specifically how to position a community as a product and promote that product to attract employers. A notable discussion topic was the growth and modernization taking place at the Port of Baltimore to accommodate the new super ships that are being designed to carry larger cargo. Baltimore is one of only two ports on the East Coast that are capable of handling these super ships. “I met and spoke with professionals in the advanced manufacturing field who are expanding their companies in Maryland,” said Hanna. “This will be important in improving the Maryland economy and creating jobs on the Eastern Shore.”
