Site Selectors Guild Annual Conference
Network at the Guild’s Most Popular Event
Each year, the Guild holds its marquee Annual Conference event with all global Guild members in attendance. The cornerstone of the Annual Conference is knowledge sharing, an interactive exchange of ideas and networking between Guild members and economic developers and investment promotion professionals from around the world.
At the conference, the ratio of Guild members to economic development organization (EDO) participants is eight to one (eight attendees for every one Guild member). Members plan all conference content, serve on panels and participate in interactive breakout sessions with conference attendees for the purpose of sharing insights and fostering discussion. Additionally, our awards program for the Annual Conference gives EDOs, their partners and communities the opportunity to be recognized within the industry and receive complimentary registration.
