What will future site selection decisions look like and how can ICR Iowa be well-positioned to capture business growth post-pandemic? A recent survey of Site Selector Guild members conducted in partnership with Development Counselors International (DCI), as well as interviews with leading economic development professionals across the country, offers insights into what economic development organizations (EDOs) can expect moving forward and how they can and should respond to this new reality. Join us for a conversation with Jay Garner, President of Garner Economics and Chair of the Site Selectors Guild, and Robyn Domber, Vice President of Research for DCI, as they share the findings of their research, captured in a DCiQ report, “The Great Coronavirus Pivot: Site Selection Consultants and Economic Developers Weigh In On COVID-19 Impact.” This session will include time for questions from participants. Registration is required.
