SLP Attends Largest Site Selection Event in Anaheim
To help the Brownfield Industrial Development Corporation in recruiting companies to Brownfield, BIDCorp has hired Site Location Partnership (SLP) a dynamic, full-service consulting firm specializing in corporate site selection and business attraction for economic development. SLP executives have completed site location projects valued at over $840 million which have accounted for the creation of more than 7,200 jobs.
Site Location Partnership (SLP), a Dallas-based corporate site selection consulting firm, announced its successful exhibition at Advanced Manufacturing Expo 2019, where the company met with manufacturing businesses to evaluate opportunities for economic development and job creation. The firm also attended a private event in Anaheim dedicated to networking and discussions between site selectors and economic developers.
“SLP represents us at trade shows we cannot afford to attend. Their executives have our profile of the kinds of companies that are a fit for us. Then they look for those companies among the over 2,000 booths. They brought back 8 companies that said they were moving and would be interested in looking at communities in the South Plains of Texas.”
As part of the largest manufacturing exhibition on the West Coast, Advanced Manufacturing Expo features the latest innovations in manufacturing and technology. Over 19,000 people attended the convention and over 2,000 booths were displayed.
“Advanced Manufacturing Expo has always provided an excellent opportunity to develop new business prospects and keep in touch with companies considering expanding their operations or relocating from California,” said Justin Thompson, CEO of Site Location Partnership. “We’ve attended this show since 2008 and always leave pleased. The show was busy for us all week.”
At the networking event, SLP representatives joined economic development officials, corporate real estate executives, business leaders and other site selection consultants. “We find these receptions invaluable for not only us, but our client base. It’s a great avenue for us to connect to folks within the corporate real estate realm. The insight shared at this event, by all in attendance, gives us a great market sense for the region and nationally,” commented Mark Darce, Senior Vice President of Development at Site Location Partnership.
