SUMMITS

Looking to maximize your exposure to site consultants? Top minds in economic development and the biggest deal makers in site selection gather for a meeting of the minds. Summit Series events are held at locations throughout the U.S., with an intimate group of economic developers at the table.

At a Summit Series event, you not only get to hear from site consultants on industry trends and client needs but, you also get to personally meet with each of the site consultants on hand about your community, ask questions and build relationships.

What can you expect?

Over two days, attendees will connect individually with 16 location consultants, keeping a one-on-one ratio on each day. Each gathering will include a world-class meal and lagniappe, or a little something extra that cannot be missed. In addition to connecting with location consultants, you will have a chance to create relationships with your peers and learn from some of the best state and regional economic developers in the country.

The event may seem short, about 24 hours to be exact, but it is full of opportunities to engage site selectors. While you are busy talking with site consultants, we’ll handle all of your logistics, including your ground travel from the airport to hotel, hotel reservations and meals.  The cost is $6,000 per Summit and $7,500 for the West Coast Summit (airfare not included).

Seats are filling up quickly for the 2016 Summit Series but, if you move quickly, you might just snag one of the last seats left! Make your reservations today and let us handle the rest!

“Site selectors are driven to guide their clients to the absolute best location. Rarely is there any opportunity for economic developers to zero-in on the factors and process we use when serving clients. This team has made a practice of uncovering and sharing our industry’s best practices. Don’t miss the chance to get the inside story first-hand.”
