Winning Business Location Strategies Webinar

How do site selectors make business location recommendations?  What are the latest trends in site selection?  And what implications does this have for reaching site selectors and recruiting new businesses to your state, region, and community?  Learn the latest from Janet Ady and Ashley Scray from Ady Advantage, who will present findings from Mid-America EDC’s triennial survey of site selectors and Mid-America EDC members. This presentation was originally scheduled for the 2020 Best Practices conference; however, we are switching the format of this presentation to virtual so that we can provide these findings to members in a timely manner.
