Economic Development

For Economic Developers

Economic Development Organizations (EDOs) and Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs) provide invaluable support to site location consultants and, by extension, their 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. The Guild offers many opportunities for economic development professionals to make meaningful connections with its members throughout the year and stay up-to-date on the latest trends in site selection and corporate location decisions.
