Economic Development



The Montgomery Chamber drives economic growth in the River Region by focusing on three key areas: corporate recruitment and expansion, tourism and conventions, and small business development.


Corporate Recruitment and Expansion

Montgomery is a region of economic diversity. As the capital of Alabama, it is home to state and regional governments as well as Maxwell Air Force Base, a major military installation and site of the prestigious Air University. An extensive service industry, wholesale and retail trade, and a thriving industrial base contribute to the city’s vibrant and well-balanced economic environment.

Tourism and Conventions

With a $1.3 million a day impact in Montgomery, tourism and conventions are key pieces of the area’s economic development. Centrally located along the Alabama River in the heart of the Southeast, Montgomery is steeped in the history of world-changing events and is in the midst of another change – a complete reemergence. From a revitalized downtown to an array of new museums, restaurants, attractions and accommodations, the riverfront Capital City is quickly becoming one of the newest must-see travel destinations in the South.

Business Development

Montgomery was recently ranked the nation’s 23rd best city to start a business. The Montgomery Chamber Business Resource Center works to ensure the success of River Region small businesses. An incubation program, co-working space, mentoring and seminars are just some of the many services available to new and prospective business owners. Because of these programs, local entrepreneurs have created more than 1,100 new jobs.
