Today, Carla Sones dives into the key findings from the COVID-19 Impacts Site Selector Survey (click the link to download your free copy). Consultant Connect heard from hundreds of economic developers that were desperate for insights from site location consultants on emerging trends, industry forecasts, and ideas on how to best respond and pivot from the crisis impacts. To get answers, we went to the source and polled active site location consultants to get data to help guide economic developer strategies.

On Thursday, May 28 we are hosting a Virtual Site Consultant Encounter to provide economic developers with the opportunity to ask even more questions. This event will be 90 minutes, consisting of panel discussions, Q+A sessions, and two separate 15-minute small group breakout discussions with a site consultant.
