How Data Centers are Impacting Loudoun’s Economy, Tax Base and Community
Loudoun County is the world’s fastest growing data center market and has attracted $13 billion in economic investment in the past years – nearly doubling its share respective to the overall tax contribution generated by Loudoun’s business community.
But there is more to the Loudoun data center market story than just dollars.
On October 17, the Loudoun Chamber will take you behind the numbers to reveal the in-depth story behind the exponential growth rate of Loudoun’s data center market. Led by industry experts, this discussion will also focus on what the future holds for our local data center market and how this vital sector is generating jobs and economic opportunity, while strengthening the quality of life for Loudoun’s citizens.
*Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to participate in an exclusive tour of a next-generation data center right after the event, courtesy of QTS Data Centers. QTS recently received its LEED Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, a significant milestone in its commitment to leading the industry in sustainability and environmental responsibility. Advanced registration is required – when registering please let us know if you are interested in joining us. Please note the tour will not be available to employees or representatives from other data center companies.

Annual Real Estate Event
While Loudoun outperforms other Virginia counties on most economic measures, we still face many challenges to our future prosperity. Whether it’s our investment in Metro, a housing affordability crisis or attracting a millennial workforce, Loudoun’s challenges demand effective solutions.
On Monday, August 19, 2019, we hosted our 37th Annual Golf Classic event at the award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course, The Club at Creighton Farms. This course is one of the finest on the Eastern Seaboard — is nothing short of spectacular. This event has been Loudoun County’s Premier business golf tournament for three decades.
For the past 8 years, this casual, networking tournament pairs you and a partner against a field of over 30 two-man teams in a progressive four month tournament. Designed with the busy professional in mind, each event consists of a 9-hole round after work, followed by a short networking reception to get you home in time to put the kids to bed. The team with the lowest cumulative score after four events is the champion. The 2019 Winners were Tom Reed and Greg Wells. Congratulations! Stay tuned for the 2020 Golf Tour dates.
