The 2015 Georgia Chamber of Commerce Red Carpet Tour kicks off Wednesday, April 8 and runs through Saturday, April 11. Twenty-four business leaders who are planning to locate or expand from throughout the nation and the world are participating in this year’s tour, which will visit the Governor’s Mansion, the College Football Hall of Fame and the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta and the Masters golf tournament in Augusta.

Each year, the Tour highlights the beauty, hospitality and business friendly economic environment Georgia has to offer.  Guests are accompanied by a host committee of business leaders in order to learn first-hand the advantages of locating in the state.  

“The Georgia Chamber is proud to be a host of the Red Carpet Tour, our state’s premier economic development event,” said Georgia Chamber president and CEO Chris Clark.  “As we celebrate our 100th anniversary, this has been one of our most successful economic development efforts, generating tens of thousands of jobs for Georgians.” 

“The Red Carpet Tour is a great opportunity to showcase Georgia and build relationships with top business leaders from around the world,” said Chair of the 2015 Red Carpet Tour and Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Carr. “This event is a testament to the strong public-private partnerships that support the growth of our economy while creating jobs and investment opportunities across Georgia.”

The 2015 Red Carpet Tour is conducted in partnership with Georgia Allies and the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce.
