The announcement that Amazon is seeking a location for a second North American headquarters has sent economic developers into an excited frenzy of planning, strategizing and daydreaming. With a planned investment of over $5 billion and the promise of 50,000 new jobs, landing HQ2 will be a huge win for whichever location makes a successful bid.
Communities across the U.S. and Canada have jumped into proposal mode and pundits everywhere, from communities big and small(er) are weighing in on where the world's third biggest retailer should go. According to the Chicago Tribune, at least 101 cities and regions are actively pursuing the bid. Is your community working to submit a proposal before the October 19th deadline? And if Amazon HQ2 isn't on your radar, will you be prepared to bid on the next big site selection opportunity?
If Amazon HQ2 is the biggest thing on your economic development agenda this month, or if you are interested in the how's of any big site selection proposal, join us this Thursday, October 5th, for a free 30-minute webinar on using your online data tools to build a convincing, engaging and exciting proposal for your community.
Amazon has invited tax breaks and other incentives in its request for proposals - how will you document and illustrate those packages? Proximity to a major airport, a population center of at least a million people, ample housing and mass transit are likely to be critical factors - how will you research and visualize those elements? Your online data tools and built-in proposal generator can make this massive proposal project more efficient and compelling.
Join us Thursday, Oct. 5th at 1 p.m. EDT/ 10 a.m. PDT for practical strategies you can use for any major site selection proposal. Can't attend at this date or time? No problem! Register anyway to get your link to the on-demand video recording.
