Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina

October 2014 marked the transition to the nonprofit corporation known as the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC). The EDPNC was created to consolidate and enhance North Carolina’s marketing and recruitment functions, previously conducted by the North Carolina Department of Commerce. The partnership serves to oversee efforts in economic development, international trade, and tourism, film and sports development. Due to this transition, the Department of Commerce’s Division of Tourism will henceforth be referred to as “Visit North Carolina.”
