Turning Economic Development Upside Down
CM | 1.25
Date: Monday, April 15
Activity Code: S575
Room: Grand Ballroom B
Track: Fiscal Challenges and Innovative Solutions Track
Without much fanfare, the economic development game has changed. Today’s site selectors are looking beyond low-cost, “shovel-ready” sites and incentives to consider talent and quality of life. Learn why a “blended economic development” strategy—requiring marketing, diagnostics, and a more sophisticated understanding of business needs—is necessary to compete in the current environment. A survey of prominent site selectors will demonstrate how the “game” is played today. Hosted by: Economic Development Division.
