New Hampshire Wooing Massachusetts Businesses with Limo Tours

Posted on November 19, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

NASHUA, N.H. – New Hampshire is stepping up efforts to woo businesses away from Massachusetts with a program that includes a tour by limousine, a meal, and a hotel stay.

State officials say the "Open Invitation" program will be almost completely privately funded.

Business owners willing to consider relocating will be picked up at the border in limos for all-expenses-paid tours. The perks include offers of hockey or skiiing tickets.

A business recruiter will make a pitch for the state at lunch before heading out to see potential relocation sites. State Boucher of New Hampshire’s Division of Economic Development acknowledges that could strain relations with Massachusetts, but says New Hampshire has to take care of New Hampshire.
