The Alexandria Economic Development Partnership is hosting a workshop late Tuesday afternoon to offer more information on the city’s Marketing Fund.
The fund is a grant program providing seed money to innovative projects in the form of matching funds.
The fund, according to the city’s website, “is designed to increase revenues within the city by fostering public/private partnerships that promote Alexandria as a destination for visiting, shopping, dining and doing business.”
City Council appropriates money for the fund and the Alexandria Marketing Fund Committee allocates it.
Tuesday’s workshop offers presentations by advertising, branding, promotion and technology experts and discuss with attendees strategies for applying for fund monies.
The free event will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday at the Lyceum. To RSVP, contact Shields@AlexEcon.org.
