PAULDING COUNTY, OH – The Paulding County Economic Development Board of Directors has announced the date for their upcoming Business & Industry Appreciation Banquet.  The banquet will take place on Tuesday, November 9 at Grant’s Catering in Antwerp.    

This will be the 21st annual event hosted by the PCED office, although last year was canceled due to the pandemic.  “This event is held to acknowledge our business, industry, and networking partners for their contributions, both to the Paulding County community and to your economic development office.  It’s a time to share success stories, recap the year, and kickstart some thoughts for the future.  The networking opportunity is outstanding in itself,” stated Tim Copsey, Economic Development Director for the county. 

The networking & social hour is from 5:30-6:30 pm with dinner being served at 6:30 pm.  The evening will include some special business acknowledgments, presentations from the largest investors and allow the opportunity for new businesses in the county that invested with PCED to introduce themselves to the banquet attendees.
