More than 400 leaders in business, government, and the community gathered Tuesday morning for the unveiling of the business brand created for north county, now known as Palm Beach North. The celebration at FAU’s Jupiter campus kicked off with a breakfast with community leaders and stakeholders, followed by the official reveal which took place inside the balloon-lined auditorium. Each municipality showed their support by reciting their declaration and proudly professing “WE ARE PALM BEACH NORTH.”
The initiative for this brand began three years ago. Spearheaded by the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, a steering committee of diverse stakeholders was formed and presented with the complex task of capturing and signifying the strength of the north county region. Finally, Palm Beach North was born!
Here is what some of the community leaders in attendance had to say about the initiative spearheaded by the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce.
