Massachusetts It’s All Here is the blog of the Massachusetts Marketing Partnership (MMP), which was created by the state legislature in 2010 in order to “coordinate marketing efforts on behalf of the commonwealth and oversee the activities of the agencies placed within it.”

The purpose of MMP is to market the state as a globally competitive, opportunity-rich place in which to live, work, visit, study, start a business or grow a business. Housed within EOHED, the MMP consists of 11 board members, and includes the Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism, Mass Office of International Trade, Commonwealth Marketing Office, Mass Film Office and Mass Sports Office.

Our blog, MassItsAllHere, aims to share the Massachusetts story in more detail, and to keep you up-to-date on the state initiatives, strategies, incentives and opportunities that can enable you to flourish here. In Massachusetts, we are always seeking new partnerships, and we invite you to collaborate with us.

As part of the Executive Office of Housing & Economic Development, we focus on topics like supporting innovation, growing the economy, building affordable housing, teaching new work skills, creating good jobs and making sure businesses have what they need to prosper.

At the same time, we celebrate quality of life assets that make Massachusetts so distinctive: our history and heritage; arts and culture; food and cuisine; our diverse population of locals, newcomers and immigrants; our rich resources and natural beauty; our location and proximity to land, sea and air routes; our spirit of inventiveness; our vision.

We welcome your suggestions along the way.
