Site Selectors Guild Fall Forum

Opportunity for One-On-One Networking

The Fall Forum is a condensed, intimate conference with even more limited attendance. At the request of economic developers seeking more one-on-one access to site selectors, Fall Forum is about half the size of the Guild’s Annual Conference and boasts a ratio of eight economic developers to one site selector. Approximately half of the Guild’s members attend this event, creating a smaller, more close-knit conference atmosphere. Similar to the Annual Conference, knowledge sharing, discussion panels, breakout sessions and networking are the hallmark of the Fall Forum.
