PHOENIX — The city of Peoria on Wednesday was presented with an Excellence in Economic Development award from the International Economic Development Council.

Peoria’s Economic Development Profile 2.0 is a brochure that shows development opportunities, city information and important data sets to aid in the strategic marketing and promotion of the city, according to a press release.

“Peoria’s Economic Development Profile 2.0 is a professional, modern brochure that represents the spirit and energy of our city while showcasing all that Peoria has to offer,” Mayor Cathy Carlat said in the release.

It was awarded the Silver Award in the Promotional Brochures category at the annual IEDC Conference.

The Profile has since been presented to a wide range of audiences including site selectors, brokers, prospects and at multiple activities and events, according to the release.

“Peoria is incredibly focused on attracting companies from key industries that will result in high-quality job creation, aligning with our workforce,” Peoria Economic Development Director Jen Stein said in the release.

The IEDC is the largest nonprofit association for professional economic developers in the world.
