Danbury Makes Pitch to Amazon for Second Headquarters

September 14, 2017


Mayor Boughton takes to the airwaves to make Danbury’s case.

DANBURY, CT – The City of Danbury announced today that it has made a pitch for Amazon HQ2 to be located within the city. To do so, the city hired Danbury’s own RmediA to film a brief video outlining the reasons that we would make the perfect home for the global company. Mayor Mark Boughton stars in the 90-second feature in which he describes the benefits that Danbury could offer to Amazon.

“We felt that with such a high-tech and global company, the only way we could stand out of the fray was to do something truly unique and impactful,” said Mayor Boughton. “We are going to go straight to the top of Amazon with our message so that they know who Danbury is. We have a lot to offer and this video will certainly grab their attention.”

The City of Danbury will be using social media advertising to target Amazon’s current headquarters and its top brass. The video features some of the most notable statistics that Danbury has achieved in recent years. Those include its designation as the safest city in the state, one of the most diverse cities in the country, and the 2nd best place to live in the United States of America. Coupled with the fact that the city has a tremendous talent pool to draw from, we know that Danbury is the perfect place for Amazon to call home.
