Showcasing South Georgia
Before the December holiday celebrations got into full
swing, the Sumter
County Development Authority hosted its second annual Fields and Feathers
Event, which highlighted economic development opportunities and the unique
community of Americus. The two-day
event combined business and pleasure for executives from UPS, Delta, Georgia
Power, Georgia EMC and Electric Cities of Georgia, as well as prospective
developers and business people.
Attendees were treated to hunts on privately owned
plantation land along with tours of Americus’ thriving downtown district and
potential sites for company expansions and relocations. It was an intimate look
at all the possibilities Sumter County has to offer businesses.
