The 2015 EDC Cornerstone Awards kicked off Wednesday evening (5/20) at Union Station with Masters of Ceremonies Mayor Sly James and EDC President Bob Langenkamp, introducing the winners in each category.  Over 400 alumni finalists, city officials, and key business leaders were in attendance, giving attendees an opportunity to meet and greet many of the people responsible for economic growth in Kansas City, Missouri.

The EDC Cornerstone Awards were established to recognize companies and projects that contribute to the growth of the city’s economy. New construction and redevelopment projects, capital investments and jobs created by these award winning businesses represent the successes that position Kansas City for future growth. We congratulate those responsible for so much growth this past year, and look forward to their continued growth and success in the future!
