The annual Cornerstone Awards, hosted by the Economic Development Corporation (EDC) of Kansas City, Missouri, is a program dedicated to celebrating innovation and growth in the community by honoring the most exciting and dynamic contributors to the city’s economic growth. New construction projects, capital investments and companies who have created or retained jobs within the city limits will be celebrated at a cocktail reception at Union Station Kansas City on May 21, 2014 from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. (Doors open at 4pm for networking.)
The EDC Cornerstone Awards is well attended and includes many alumni finalists, leadership from the Economic Development Corporation, city officials, and key business leaders. It’s expected to be one of the best Business to Business (B2B) networking events of 2014, giving attendees an opportunity to learn about Kansas City’s growth and talk with key business people in and around the metro area.
