CHICAGO, IL (December 9, 2015) - Site Selectors Guild (SSG) President Phil Schneider announced today that corporate end users will assume prominent roles during the Guild's 5th Annual Conference to be held at the Omni Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee on February 24-26, 2016.
"This year we are excited that corporate representatives from IAMC (Industrial Asset Management Council) will lead a panel discussion on site selection drivers and industry trends, and also be available to interact informally with conference attendees." said Schneider. The company representatives for the 2016 Annual Conference are yet to be determined, but a similar panel held for the first time at the SSG Fall Forum conference in Philadelphia in October included representatives from Kellogg's, USG, Penske, and Linde North America.
The Site Selectors Guild is the only association of the world's foremost professional site selection consultants. Its annual conference, which has once again sold out, offers a unique opportunity for economic developers to interact with 42 consultants and hundreds of their peers during three days of programming, networking and entertainment.
The Nashville Chamber of Commerce and its economic development partners from across Tennessee will play host to this prestigious event. "We are proud to host the Site Selectors Guild Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee", said Courtney Ross, chief economic development officer, Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. "Tennessee has been recognized as the top state for doing business in each of the last two years and this is a great opportunity to demonstrate why we are the location of choice for so many growing, successful companies."
The conference also will feature a keynote presentation on the state of U.S. infrastructure by Brian Pallash of the American Society of Civil Engineers, among other panels and breakout session discussions lead by SSG's professional site selector members. The popular and now traditional Dinner and Talent Show event will also take place at the conference this year, but will be held at a special location that takes advantage of Nashville's rich music culture - the Country Music Hall of Fame.
