I have seen Nancy Millar the Vice President of the Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) performing her duties at different events. I can tell you that she knows her industry well. The last time, she was the keynote speaker at the meeting of the McAllen South Rotary Club. She gave an excellent presentation on the strengths of attraction that McAllen and the region have.

Sometimes, presenters have an easy time when there are no questions posed by the audience. That is not something that members of the McAllen Rotary Club do. They always have questions that some keynote speakers hesitate to answer.

Nancy went through the same grinding, and even though the questions were apparently discomforting, they had merits and value. Nancy didn’t tremble and with no hesitation gave the informed appropriate response. Just as the questions had value, her responses had a high level of illustration on how hotel tax revenue is implemented. In this issue, get to know more about Nancy and the Convention & Visitors Bureau that she heads.

ON ANOTHER MATTER: The Edinburg Economic Development Corp. continues to be very aggressive in transforming the City. More business and residential developments, along with improved public safety protections, will soon be coming to an estimated combined total of 60,000 city and Hidalgo county residents as a result of recent decisions by elected leaders, this according to Edinburg Economic Development Corporation.

A new Edinburg Fire Station No. 5; this 9,571-square-foot facility, that will also house emergency medical services (EMS ambulance) – is set to open during the spring of 2018. It will be a full-service station with four fire trucks and one ambulance; it will be equipped with dormitories, a kitchen, and a workout area to house up to 10 firefighters and two ambulance attendants. Edinburg never stops!

ELIO BOTELLO did it again. Botello is one of the gutsiest savvy developers in the produce market industry. He owns Abasto, Inc. and the creator of McAllen Produce Terminal and the Warehouse Kingdom.

Botello has made strategic moves, and now he is in San Antonio, Texas with a new venture San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market. The new complex of warehouses was inaugurated in April 2016. He reports to Texas Border Business that business is good and continues to welcome more produce growers and merchants from the U.S. and Mexico.

The truth is that the location of San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market is unique. The facility is located right on South East Loop 410 that connects all the city and provides easy access to Interstate 10 to get to Houston, Interstate 35 coming from Laredo, passing through Austin and Dallas all the way to Canada, and Interstate 37 coming from McAllen-Pharr and Corpus Christi.

I trust that you’ll enjoy this issue.
