2021 Fall Forum

Join Us for the 2021 Fall Forum

The 2021 Fall Forum will be an in-person event on November 8 – 10. The event provides unique opportunities for economic developers and Guild members to network and connect.

Originally scheduled to be held in New Orleans, the Fall Forum is being relocated in the wake of Hurricane Ida. We ask you continue to keep the state of Louisiana in your thoughts as they recover, and we will announce the new location soon.

The Site Selectors Guild will implement and adhere to all governmental mandates during the entirety of the event.
