City of Surprise Wins Two Golden Prospector Awards Recognizing Excellence in Economic Development

The city of Surprise has won two Golden Prospector Awards from the Arizona Association for Economic Development (AAED), recognizing excellence, innovation and creativity in economic development. 

The city was recognized for its multimedia promotion, “Surprise Retail Survey,” and its special event, “Tech the Halls.” 

The “Surprise Retail Survey” was created as a way to truly engage residents and establish a retail strategy. The survey shows top local favorites as well as most desired retailers. Now in its third year, the retail survey initiative has become a case study for cities across the country. 

“Tech the Halls” is an annual event that connects local entrepreneurs with the Surprise community. The event offered a venue to help AZ TechCelerator tenants showcase their innovative companies and celebrate the program’s successes. Interactive activities included product demonstrations, scavenger hunt, selfie booth and more. 

Overall, 10 Golden Prospector Awards and seven awards of merit were presented at AAED’s fall forum in Prescott. 

AAED, founded in 1974, has a mission to serve as Arizona’s unified voice advocating for responsible economic development through an effective program of professional education, public policy, and collaboration.
