Deerfield Beach Receives 2022 International Economic Development Award

The International Economic Development Council (IEDC), the largest nonprofit professional association for professional economic developers in the world, has selected Deerfield Beach’s Starting Your Business in Deerfield Beach multilingual flipbook for its 2022 Excellence in Economic Development Awards in the Digital Media Category. Recognized each year during the IEDC Annual Conference, the awards honor organizations for exemplary economic development marketing campaigns, projects, and programs.

This award recognizes the innovative use of digital media technologies in economic development. The “Starting Your Business in Deerfield Beach” flipbook was designed to help individuals find information on how to access City services and a network of other resources to help businesses start, grow and prosper. Deerfield Beach has embraced a commitment to removing local jurisdiction barriers to small business development by providing a multilingual written and virtual step by step guide to forming a new enterprise.

“The winners of IEDC’s Excellence in Economic Development awards represent the best of economic development and demonstrate the level of leadership that our profession strives for every day,” shared IEDC President and CEO Nathan Ohle.

“This year’s awards selection process was especially competitive. We are honored to recognize the more than 100 communities whose marketing submissions, projects, and partnerships have improved regional quality of life,” added IEDC Awards Advisory Committee Chair Christina Winn.

Awards are judged by a diverse panel of economic and community developers from around the world. IEDC received over 500 submissions from the United States and four additional countries around the world.
