ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Business executives from all over the world are in southwest Georgia this week for the 22nd annual Georgia Quail Hunt.

Twenty-seven-guests will spend the next three days in southwest Georgia at several plantations and will meet with Lt. Governor Casey Cagle and Governor Sonny Perdue. The Albany Dougherty Economic Development Commission helps sponsor the event. They say it's a fantastic opportunity to build business relationships and hopefully entice new business to southwest Georgia.

"It's a lot about the relationships that you make and any opportunity that you have to showcase your product and our product is our wonderful community. It's a boon, if you can take that opportunity then you need to," said Barbara Rivera Holmes, Albany Dougherty Economic Development Commission.

Since 1994, event guests have invested 2.5-billion dollars in Georgia and created 7,500 jobs.
