The Center of Business Innovation provides a plethora of effective long-term benefits for the surrounding community. With the involvement of the businesses of Orange County we can proactively come together in order to have a voice in political, social and economic circumstances that impact the community. Advocacy from CBI on behalf of the business community will not only be a benefit but an asset that will set Orange County apart from other communities that have no organization to speak on their behalf. In addition to having a voice, businesses will benefit from the opportunity to get involved with other businesses providing a priceless networking opportunity, further forging a stronger bond for businesses of Orange County.
In addition to advocacy, another goal of CBI is to improve the county fair. The reason that this is such a high priority for CBI is because of the countless positive side effects that stem from a strong and populated county fair. Agriculture is a huge economic engine, unbeknownst to most people; however, it is an area that loses attention especially with the rise of technology. The county fair is a way to remind people of the importance and significant impact of agriculture. In other counties, a successful fair can provide educational opportunities for a wide array of age groups, an interactive option for bringing together a community and a constructive and safe environment for family and friends alike. CBI hopes to revitalize the Orange County fair in order for the community to reap its many rewards.
Another benefit of a booming Orange County Fair is that it would be a big draw for people from outside of Orange County. A successful fair would increase tourism in Orange County exponentially. Local businesses would benefit greatly from an increase of tourism because of the traffic induced by the county fair.
