Making it Happen in downtown Akron

Downtown Akron Partnership, through a partnership with JLL, launched the Making it Happen campaign in Feb. 2018 to promote key properties in downtown Akron for businesses to consider when searching for office space.

Through an initial six month campaign in the Akron Beacon Journal/, several downtown companies were spotlighted with a Q&A about their business and culture accompanied by information on office trends, workplace strategies, market statistics and more.

Round two began in Oct. 2018 and will continue through March 2019 on the last Sunday of the month.
