Cheers to McDonnell- More Jobs on the Way.

Major Winery Trade Show Moving to Richmond

Gov. Bob McDonnell is not stepping off the gas when it comes to job creation in the commonwealth. Just yesterday McDonnell announced that Northrop Grumman will be moving their operations from Los Angeles to Northern Virginia, and today the Governor announced that Wineries Unlimited's trade show will be relocating from Pennsylvania to Richmond in 2011.

"We are thrilled that Wineries Unlimited has decided to move to Virginia. Virginia wines have seen their standing in the domestic and global marketplaces grow in recent years and having Wineries Unlimited in Virginia will help us as we continue our efforts to promote Virginia wines both here and abroad. This is also a chance for us to showcase our first class wineries to people from across the nation.
- Gov. McDonnell

The Wineries Unlimited trade show is the second-largest vineyard and winery conference and trade show in North America. The trade show’s move from Pennsylvania is projected to generate $1.5 Million in revenue for Virginia, as well as over 2,000 visitors to the state capital.

Another impressive and much needed move by Gov. McDonnell! What will he do tomorrow?
