Connections Made at Site Selectors Guild Fall Forum

One way the Economic Development Department (EDD) works to attract new business to Pierce County is by making sure the message is out that Pierce County is open for business! In September, a team from the EDD and the Economic Development Board for Tacoma Pierce County (EDB) did just that by attending the Site Selectors Guild Fall Forum Conference in Seattle. Site selectors, or location consultants as they are sometimes called, help corporations find suitable locations to expand and grow.

“The Fall Forum Conference offered us a unique chance to meet some of the most prominent site selectors in the Country”, said Kevin Clegg, Special Assistant to the Executive for Business Services. Site selectors and economic development professionals have long depended upon each other to assist companies when looking to locate new facilities. The team had several one-on-one meetings with site selectors sharing the message that Pierce County is indeed open for business. Clegg added “With companies always looking for the next opportunity, it’s important these consultants know about our area and consider us when advising their clients”.
