During this past year, the Greater Coachella Valley Chamber of Commerce (GCVCC) began “Business Walks” to connect with Indio businesses and invited the City of Indio to participate. The walks proved very effective in establishing relationships with local businesses and learning how the City and GCVCC could assist them grow and succeed. The Business Walks took place in various commercial areas throughout the city on November 1, 2017; and April 18, June 6, and August 2, 2018. The City looks forward to joining the GCVCC in future Business Walks to meet the entrepreneurs and innovators who are growing Indio’s economy and creating jobs for our residents.
