Why do leading businesses choose specific locations, and how do developers and operators team with local and state governments to present their case for those locations? The importance of developing strategies based on site-selection trends and key decision factors cannot be overstated. We'll discuss:

  • Current trends in site selection, including decision speed, risks of data ubiquity, and the changing incentives landscape.
  • Site-selection factors for different industries, such as talent pipeline, industry ecosystem, and cost-versus-conditions trade-offs.
  • Considerations for choosing an operating location that provides a competitive advantage, including access, utilities, tax matters, and risk mitigation.

Participants will learn about what leading businesses consider when choosing to locate or relocate their operations.
