Rolling out the Red Carpet

February 19, 2003

Albany - On April 11th, dozens of major businesses will tour Albany. And if they like what they see, they might move or expand to the Good Life City.

For the first time since 1997, The Georgia Red Carpet Tour will stop here. About 50 business leaders from companies across America will be wined and dined in hopes they'll bring their businesses and jobs to Dougherty County.

"Past Red Carpet Tours brought Procter and Gamble and M&M Mars to Albany," said Tim Martin. "We've planned a day of pageantry and fun for these business leaders."
