How Site Selectors Work with Economic Developers and IPAs
Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) and Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) provide invaluable support to site location consultants and, by extension, their clients. Critical assistance furnished by EDOs/IPAs includes maintaining a robust website, responding to Requests for Information (RFIs), arranging consultant field visits, sharing knowledge about an area’s resources for pertinent site selection projects and engaging in efforts to continuously improve an area’s capability to sustain the operational needs of varied businesses. In effect, site selection consultants and EDOs/IPAs engage in a collaborative effort to ensure optimal location solutions for corporate clients.
One mission of the Site Selectors Guild is to foster the vital relationships between economic developers and site selection consultants through sharing of valuable information and feedback from our work with corporate clients in order to help make regions and communities more competitive and successful.
