100 Small Businesses Attend Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta Event
In a business where "who-you-know" is critical to landing a business opportunity, over 100 small businesses recently attended an event seeking guidance on how to establish a relationship with the $6 billion Film Industry here in Georgia.
Cassius Butts, Southeast Region Administrator, U.S. Small Business Administration stressed, "It is important that small businesses have every opportunity for growth as small business growth strengthens our community as a whole."
The intimate event brought established production vendors together to listen in on a panel discussion with representatives from Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta and the Georgia Production Alliance.
During the discussion, Doug Nicely, Executive Vice President of Operations at Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta, informed the attendees that each production renting space at the studio receives a list of preferred vendors. In addition, he announced the registered suppliers would be added to the list that Mr. Nicely described as "gold" to the productions.
The Founder and Principal of Georgia Production Alliance, Len Gough, also announced they would add the supplier registrants to their list of vendors available for download.
"Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta made a significant investment in Gwinnett County. We are proud to host this event and be creating jobs and opportunity for local businesses in our community," said Steve Economos, CEO of Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta. "It's incredible to witness the impact that the Film and Television industry has had on our economy. We look forward to seeing the success continue."
