Business Display Area

The EDC provides a designated display area for your business cards and company brochures. When you provide us with these materials, it gives us the opportunity to market your business and its services to potential customers within the EDC community, Glades County, and the Heartland region!


EDC members may host socials at our newly renovated office on the corner of US Hwy 27 and 10th Street in Moore Haven. Socials are an excellent opportunity for a business “meet and greet”! They also provide a low-cost way to market and advertise your business. Please note that the host is responsible for providing refreshments during the event.
