Art Industry Media ’18 @ HVCCA!
Join us for an exciting weekend of events celebrating our region’s emergence as a center for multimedia in the Hudson Valley. Technology, the Internet and close proximity to NYC has given rise to a thriving creative arts industry. Participating organizations will showcase multimedia art, industry and educational resources with shows, events and interactive programming.
Art Industry Media (AIM) is a newly-formed division of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce. AIM’s mission is to promote Peekskill and the surrounding Chamber territory as a media hub for the lower Hudson Valley. Proximity to NYC, ease of transportation, educated creative work force, and competitive commercial and residential real estate contribute to make this a uniquely favorable media business environment.
