The Upstate is the engine driving South Carolina’s new economy. During the past ten years (2007-2017), companies have invested more than $18 billion in capital in the Upstate, creating nearly 59,000 jobs. More than 465 international companies, representing 35 countries, call this area home, fueling South Carolina’s reputation as a global economic leader. From the automotive industry to carbon fiber, healthcare to distribution, the Upstate manufactures, exports and innovates - and, in the process, changes the world. That level of investment and economic success, however, would not be possible without partnerships - people moving in the same direction to achieve common goals. To that end, SCC hosts the annual Economic Visionaries event, providing an ideal opportunity to join together and celebrate our collective accomplishments.
EV19 will be held March 21, 2019 and features keynote speaker Mark Bellissimo. We hope you will nominate your company, sponsor this event and purchase tickets!
