The Fort Bend Marketing Committee is a public-private initiative focused on marketing Fort Bend County as Greater Houston's Finest Address for business relocation and talent attraction.

What We Do

The Fort Bend marketing program is a public-private initiative funded by business leaders, local cities, and Fort Bend County. The Fort Bend EDC oversees the marketing program, and the marketing committee, or Program Oversight Board, reviews the metrics and outcomes quarterly, approves an annual budget and program of work, and drives the messaging to attract both businesses and talent to Fort Bend County.

Fort Bend County, part of the Greater Houston region, excels when compared to other counties in the Houston MSA. Our demographics, accomplishments, and community assets set us apart, and drives our data-driven approach to marketing.

Why Fort Bend

The Fort Bend Marketing Program answers the question, "Why Fort Bend?", utilizing video content and cutting-edge graphics to tell our success story via digital media and electronic outreach.


The marketing committee meets quarterly to be updated by FBEDC staff on program metrics. You can review updates to the committee below.
