GoogleecityGoogle has named Annapolis as the 2014 eCity for the State of Maryland. The eCity Awards recognize the strongest online business communities in all fifty states. The businesses in these communities are embracing the web to find new customers, connect with existing clients and fuel their local economies. Annapolis joins the ranks of America’s leading cities in the digital economy.

Small businesses across the city have leveraged the Internet to grow and reach new customers. For example, Carrol’s Creek, a family owned and operated restaurant for more than 30 years in Annapolis, utilizes the web to strengthen their online presence by continually updating information and evolving as the internet expands.

“Annapolis serves as a prime example of how innovation and growth in e-commerce can successfully contribute to bolstering economic progress and competitiveness,” said Emma Ogiemwanye, a representative from Google. “Google is proud to recognize Annapolis’ accomplishment, and the role it plays in creating Maryland jobs.”

“The City understands the power of the web in relating real-time information that both customers and business can benefit from,” Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides said. “We are thrilled with the national recognition and applaud Annapolis businesses for keeping up with new innovations in the ever changing world of technology.”
