Today, we are bringing you some of the highlights from the Virtual Site Consultant Encounter event which Consultant Connect hosted last week. We were joined by 13 site consultants and 130 economic developers for an extended Q+A panel and small group breakout sessions. Tune in to this episode to hear more about the state of economic development and site selection, what the consultants are predicting will happen in the future, and how workforce, onshoring and incentives are changing.

If you are looking for more resources for the post-COVID pivot, we created an economic development leader guide book with lots of information and resources. You can download it for free here.

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.
