Site Selection Group, a global location advisory, economic incentive, and corporate real estate services firm, is thrilled to announce that Senior Partner Kelley Rendziperis and Director Michaela Martin will present at the Women in Economic Development Forum (WEDF) in Chicago, Illinois in October.

The event spans three days, October 10-12, and features presentations focused on the trends influencing corporate location decisions and economic development strategy. Organized by Area Development, this will be the 13th annual WEDF. 

On Wednesday, October 11th, Rendziperis and Martin are presenting a discussion, "Chicken or the Egg: What Comes First - Site Selection or Incentives?". A brief description of the topic included in the Agenda explains, "There are a lot of variables within the site selection process driven by key factors such as real estate availability, utilities, workforce, regulatory and tax environment, etc. Inevitably, the question becomes when should site selection eventually blend with economic incentives? This session will discuss best practices to implement early in the RFI process and initial site visits to support a well-organized, comprehensive, and swift decision-making process."

The sold-out forum is being held at the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile and will feature leading site consultants and experts across the real estate industry participating in presentations, panels, and roundtable discussions.
