The Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission has won the Mississippi Economic Development Council's 2015 Community Economic Development Award for its marketing materials and re-branding.
"Hancock: Port, Air and Space" features a new logo and tagline that promotes the commission's scope and purpose.
"Our objective was to display the strengths Hancock County offers to industry and business," said Janel Carothers, the commission's chief development officer. "The brand successfully communicates our absolute economic advantage of doing business in Hancock County."
The Hancock Chamber of Commerce managed the re-branding project and Marketing Alliance of Jackson developed the marketing materials.
The website -- portairspace.com -- targets industrial prospects and site-selection consultants for businesses looking to build, move or expand. The site has information about industrial sites and buildings at Stennis International Airport, Port Bienville and Stennis Space Center, and other county information.
