After being held in cities such as Belfast, Melbourne and New York, the World Police and Fire Games are coming to Northern Virginia in 2015. Running from June 26 to July 5, the games will bring 12,000 athletes and 30,000 spectators to the area. The estimated impact to the local economy is between $60 and $80 million. What does this mean to you? If you're a Loudoun business owner, it's time to capitalize on this extraordinary event.

As DED Assistant Director Miguel Salinas said to the assembled crowd at a recent Chamber of Commerce information session, the World Police and Fire Games is a "tremendous opportunity to showcase Loudoun." In fact, eight events will actually take place in the county, including bowling, badminton and ice hockey. Leesburg's own Morven Park will be home to one of the most highly anticipated events, outdoor soccer. Athletes and spectators will be flying into Dulles International Airport, and the Holiday Inn - Dulles will be the transportation hub. While events are spread throughout the region, Loudoun County will be the athletes' first and final destinations.

In the future, when wine lovers outside the U.S. think of American wines, we want Loudoun County, Virginia to be the first region that comes to mind. We’re now a step closer to making that vision a reality.

When it’s fully up and running, our Viticulture and Enology Education Center will train world-class wine makers here in Loudoun. Potential sites have been identified in Purcellville; its town leaders worked closely with Loudoun Economic Development, Virginia Tech and the Northern Virginia Community College over the past year to map out a course for creating the VEEC.
