Now that we are free to travel to support our global business development strategy, our team at the Bradenton Area Economic Development Corp. is wasting no time. We're arranging meetings with corporate decision-makers and traveling to targeted industry gatherings to discuss the Bradenton area's assets as a business location.This year we are particularly focused on the aviation industry, which is a fast-growing sector that already has a foothold in our region. More than 50 employers in the industry operate in Manatee and Sarasota counties, and the aviation sector accounts for 16% of Manatee County's workforce.
