Greater Louisville representatives attend Site Selectors Guild Conference

Greater Louisville Inc. and representatives from throughout the Greater Louisville Region attended the annual Site Selectors Guild Annual Conference in Nashville, which brought together over 600 economic development professionals, including 59 site selectors.  This premier event was an opportunity to connect with economic development experts and promote the Greater Louisville region to national site selectors.  Representatives from GLI, Louisville Metro, LG&E and KU, River Ridge Commerce Center, and One Southern Indiana, attended and showcased the collective assets of the Greater Louisville region.  

“Participating in the Site Selectors Guild Annual Conference is crucial for our work to grow the regional economy. It’s where we can connect directly with site consultants who help businesses identify regions well-suited for their expansion or relocation needs. Forums like the Site Selectors Guild Annual Conference allow us to share our region’s story, which in turn helps us grow our pipeline of opportunities,” said Clark Welch, vice president of economic development for GLI.

The Site Selectors Guild Annual Conference is one of more than a half-dozen conferences GLI attends each year to maintain and build connections for business attraction and expansion opportunities.  Later this year, GLI will also lead a coalition to the BIO International Conference in San Diego, which will include a state-of-the-art booth and more than a dozen of the region’s economic development, educational, and business leaders. GLI will also attend the Area Development Consultants Forum in Virginia Beach, and the SEDC Annual Conference in Savannah.
