PARK CITY -- The Sundance Film Festival not only brings many celebrities to the state, but also a lot business people.
Saturday, Gov. Gary Herbert, with the help of the Sundance Utah Advisory Board, spoke with business leaders from throughout the country at the Business Connection event at the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Valley.
The goal of the event is to encourage successful businessmen and women to bring their companies to Utah, or at least expand their existing companies.
"We thought the very best ambassadors for the state of Utah would be businesses who have come here themselves from out of state and loved the business climate here," says Sundance Utah Advisory Board Chair Tina Lewis.
Business Connection has run for several years, and Lewis says it's seen great success.
