The room was a buzz with business on Thursday, April 11th at the Holiday Inn ballroom in Crystal Lake. Almost 90 companies participated and connected with potential customers and suppliers which was like music to the ears of MCEDC President Pam Cumpata. "The purpose of this event to open doors, create opportunities and to share information about products and companies. Bottom line....to build business! We have heard of companies who participated before and have generated solid business. In fact, one company met its business park neighbor here and within two years this previously 'unknown' neighbor is now one of their top customers."
Thanks to one of our valued EDC Investor/members, Robin Pendergrast Photography, LLC., you can get an idea of the event by clicking this video link.

This speeddating for manufacturers event provided companies with from 7 to 10 fifteen minute appointments. Every 15 minutes, President Pam Cumpata rang a bell to close the match and folks moved to their next appointments. Fourteen MCEDC Investor/members and service providers such as Centegra Health Systems and Stan's Office Technologies were staged around the sides of the room for companies to meet. In addition, many Illinois state agencies were also on hand to assist and meet with companies during their free times. One of the most sought after matches at the event was Caterpillar. Their two representatives held over 22 matches with our McHenry County manufacturers. In total, over 500 match appointments were held.
MCEDC Board of Director Mark Steadman (Stan's Office Technologies, servng Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin) expressed his appreciation to Corporate Sponsor "Castle Bank" and breakfast sponsor "In Sync Systems" for making this event possible. Steadman also commented that "Manufacturing is a vital component of McHenry County's economy responsible for almost 25%. MCEDC will continue to provide our manufacturers with support and opportunities for growth."
