Business in Gaithersburg

I am scheduled to take a business trip to Gaithersburg, Maryland next week.

I grew up in the region (specifically, suburban Virginia) a few decades ago, and at the time, the business of Washington was government. Today's it's still government, but government contractors have taken a bigger role.

But you have to learn how to do business, which is why when I did a web search for "gaithersburg business" I ended up at Montgomery College:

Montgomery College provides undergraduate and Workforce Development and Continuing Education programs for virtually all of the county's business, government, entertainment, and community service sectors. The College also provides employee, business, association, and government agency training on-campus, in-house, and online....

Work with our Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division for open enrollment courses or customized instruction by one of our Training Institutes: The Gudelsky Institute for Technical Training, Health Sciences Institute, Hispanic Business Institute, the Information Technology Institute, other training departments, or credit departments.

But why should you think about business in Montgomery County, Maryland? Some Chamber of Commerce-type person wrote something about THAT:

Montgomery County has a diverse population of over 927,000 (U.S. Census population est.2005) and is the largest county in Maryland. Montgomery County has one of the nation's most highly educated and diverse workforces, with a strong economy. The County has robust and growing information technology, biomedical, and health care sectors, based in part on the presence the National Institutes of Health, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and commercial, research, and incubator technology centers in Rockville, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Silver Spring, Bethesda, and other parts of the county.

Hey, as long as Gaithersburg has a business that caters to my NTN Buzztime needs, I'm OK.
