Attracting Businesses to your City
The Right Blend of Data, Analytics, and Boots on the Ground
It’s no secret that data and analytics play an integral role in business recruitment and retention for your city. It’s equally important for city leaders to understand the need for boots on the ground in their communities, in order to both fully understand the commercial real estate landscape and to work with local retail development and brokerage professionals. Finding the right balance of these components is truly the key to success for making your jurisdiction an appealing location for new businesses.
In this webinar, you and your staff will hear:
- What data points businesses really need to see about your community
- The local and regional players that help support development initiatives
- Case studies on business recruitment from Clearlake, California
Who Should Attend: Economic Developers, Brokers, Retailers, Real Estate Pros
