Region redefining itself

SANDESTIN, Fla. -- Workforce training was the most consistent theme during the opening day of an economic development symposium in Northwest Florida. But the vision of a region on the cusp of change might have been the most compelling message. Much of that reason for the new vision of the future is thanks to the Airbus' assembly line being built in Mobile, Ala. The opening day of the 17th annual Gulf Power Economic Symposium drew nearly 600 movers and shakers to the Sandestin Resort. The symposium continues today. (Source: GCAC, 10/01/13)
