Tulsa Takes the Arts to NYC
What can Tulsa show the big apple about arts? Apparently a quite a bit.
The Tulsa Metro Chamber, along with The City of Tulsa, the Oklahoma Department of Commerce and the Oklahoma Business Roundtable, sponsored a performance of the Tulsa Ballet in New York City this week during the company's week long run at the Joyce Theater. Before the performance, the Chamber and its partners hosted a reception for corporate site selection consultants and executives of NYC headquartered firms.
Mike Neal, President and CEO of the Tulsa Metro Chamber, said:
"The entire nation is looking at Tulsa. The Tulsa region has one of the lowest costs of doing business in the nation, a low cost of living and a high per capita income. We've been selected as the number one location in America to relocate and during this U.S. recession, now more than ever, it is important to capitalize on opportunities to tell our story.""This event will not only change perceptions of the Tulsa region, but grow interest. It's a new era of economic development, and together with partners like Oklahoma Department of Commerce, the Chamber is making sure the nation knows we are open for business."
