As the official Regional Economic Development Organization and Regional Tourism Council of Berkshire County, we are here to assist you in becoming a part of our dynamic region in Western MA, which is well-positioned for investment, growth, and development.
1Berkshire was created in June 2016 by a merger of four countywide economic development organizations: the Berkshire Economic Development Corporation, the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce, the Berkshire Visitors Bureau, and the Berkshire Creative Economy Council. By combining these entities, we leverage resources, improve efficiency, expand audience reach, and coordinate programs that benefit every area of the region. We are the voice of the Berkshire business community with a strong membership and a powerful network of resources. Check out the original visioning for 1Berkshire in the Berkshire Blueprint.
