Piedmont Triad Partnership
Founded in 1991, the Piedmont Triad Partnership (PTP) is a leadership organization bringing together the business community in the Triad region to promote prosperity and growth. We are supporting regional development platforms including megasite development, the aeroplex anchored by Piedmont Triad International Airport and the redevelopment of Whitaker Park Complex. We believe supporting these transformational projects will prepare the Triad to compete for major economic development job generators.
The Partnership promotes economic development in the following counties in the north-central, piedmont region of North Carolina:
Metropolitan centers: Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington, Asheboro
