What happens when new technologies, deep IT talent and smart business people converge? You have fertile ground for the digital media industry, and that is exactly what Fairfax County has become. Fast-growing start-ups and innovative established firms here create, inform, entertain, market and analyze.
That’s why the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) is honored to present our second Social Media Week event. Nearly 400 people attended last year’s event, SMWiFairfax, which drew an impressive range of speakers and sponsors – and trended on Twitter to boot. This year we will continue our exploration of how social media is changing business, government, the media world – and even the world of sports.
The award-winning FCEDA promotes the county as a business and technology center that embraces growth and innovation. The FCEDA prides itself on its work with businesses of all kinds and sizes, and we are proud of the diverse and cosmopolitan business community that we have helped build. Worldwide in its efforts, the FCEDA maintains marketing offices in six important global business centers -- Bangalore, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Seoul and Tel Aviv – as well as our headquarters in Tysons Corner.
We are delighted to showcase Fairfax County as a great location for digital media companies, all kinds of technology firms, and the employees who work for them. Check out any list of great companies – the Fortune 500, Inc. 5000, best places to work in a diverse range of categories and industries – and you will find Fairfax County companies.
