The Site Selectors Guild has announced that its Fall Forum will be hosted in Detroit in 2024 and Indianapolis in 2025. The conference, established in 2015, is one of the most prestigious gatherings of site selectors and economic development professionals in the world.
The 2024 Fall Forum will take place in Detroit from September 23-25, 2024, hosted by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. The 2025 Fall Forum will take place in Indianapolis from October 1-3, 2025, hosted by the Greater Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce.
“As the only association of the world’s foremost professional site selection consultants, the Site Selectors Guild takes tremendous pride in its marquee events – from developing the timeliest original content and new programming formats to selecting host locations that meet the high expectations attendees have come to expect from our Fall Forum,” said Gregg Wassmansdorf, Site Selectors Guild board chair and senior managing director, global consulting at Newmark. “The Guild has found two outstanding partners in the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Greater Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, and we look forward to Detroit and Indianapolis shining at the 2024 and 2025 Fall Forums.”
The selection process for the 2024 and 2025 Fall Forum host locations was a competitive process, with more than a dozen qualified proposals submitted to the Guild. Applicants were required to demonstrate reliable and widespread air connectivity to major markets across North America, availability of large and high-quality hotels that can accommodate guest and meeting space needs, availability of affordable hotels within close proximity for attendees operating under strict travel budgets, and ability to meet the financial obligation of host sponsor fee. Proposals were reviewed by the Guild’s seven-person board of directors.
