Next week Tuesday the Langlade County Economic Development Corporation will be holding a Lunch and Learn event to help businesses in the county get information out about them better online. Corporation Executive Director Christine Berry talked about the event during Thursday's WATK-AM 900 Arby's Breakfast Club.

Berry said the event will have two focuses. The first will be a presentation by Brad Gegare from DMiNTERACTIVE to showcase what can be done online in the form of advertising. "It's to introduce all the wonderful high tech, technological marketing tools that are out there for businesses to utilize."

Berry said the other purpose of the event will be to reintroduce the corporation to businesses. The corporation has made a few changes over the past year with a new location and new name, but the same focus is there. "One of our missions is to market Langlade County as a destination; whether that be business, tourism, workforce, ag, education, health care, you name it. We want to market Langlade County as a destination...not to point a cliche, but to live, work and play."

The free event will be held at the corporation's location at the Antigo Northcentral Technical College and start at noon. More information on the event and how to register can be found online at or calling 715-623-2085.
