15 JulBrandon Bellamy to Deliver the Keynote Address at the Maryland Economic Development Association Summer Conference 2020


GREENBELT, MD (July 15, 2020) – Brandon Bellamy, CEO of Velocity Companies, will deliver the keynote address at the Maryland Economic Development Association (MEDA) Summer Conference on Wednesday, July 29, 2020. The virtual conference, scheduled from 9:00 A.M. to 12 P.M., will highlight leaders from both the public and private sector sharing insight on how economic developers can assist business owners and the unique challenges that they face in the midst of COVID-19.

Bellamy, a successful real estate entrepreneur, has worked for many years to locate and build opportunities where it is needed the most. But his success, and that of his projects, have not been without their unique challenges, many of which are not apparent to everyone working in economic development.

“Communities that were distressed pre-COVID-19 are even more distressed today, and many of these communities are comprised of minority business owners and entrepreneurs,” said Bellamy. “I look forward to sharing my journey at this year’s Summer Conference and hope that it benefits those working to create jobs and investment in the state of Maryland.”

Brandon will provide examples of challenges he has met and overcome and share how he is not alone when it comes to being faced with these unique challenging hurdles. He has a story that exemplifies how to put together a recipe for success using hard work, community support, and economic development.

The MEDA Summer Conference is sponsored by Maryland Department of Commerce, Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), and Maryland Association of Counties (MACO). For more information about the MEDA 2020 Summer Conference and to register, visit www.medamd.com. ###
