Introduction

 The directory below lists sponsors and exhibitors to highlight the events in which they are known to participate so that they can be identified by region.  Scroll down to the directory of events.  See how to request a relevant directory listing 

See also : Familiarization events

This service should make it easier for executives to anticipate where they can potentially meet area representatives and professional advisors at events which they may plan to attend.

See : Events we plan to attend

The Bio 2004, Pack Expo, NPE 2003  and NMW 2004 lists serve as good initial examples of this service as also summarized through the regional lists below (across multiple events).

See : directory of exhibitors by region

This feature identifies many areas which invest heavily in event sponsorship and trade shows for their marketing strategies.  It is selective, rather than a comprehensive list of all areas.

We specialize in personal, independent introductions to relevant professional service providers such as business location strategy consultants and our many economic development contacts according to the project interests of the executives we serve.

Our Professional Site Selection Tour and "Meeting Point" services also introduce site selection professionals who can assist communities through special research trips ("inward visits" or familiarization tours), pre-scheduled meetings at major events, and services designed to support their competitive benchmarking analysis, investment promotion strategies, and marketing programs.  www.ontheshortlist.com

We can also privately coordinate executive visits to one or more business locations when planning an investment project or seeking local business alliances. 

Please contact us to discuss our event marketing services and introductory referrals.

Partners4Technology

The International Business Introduction Service

for Technology-Led Business Cluster Development

 

Background Information about this unique B2B service

which collaborates globally with local economic development programs

such as business retention, expansion, trade, and cluster initiatives

to introduce executives to potentially relevant business contacts

according to their specified interests and preferences

without necessarily waiting to meet at networking events.

 

www.partners4technology.com

See examples below.  This "recall" service will selectively highlight recent event exhibitors, sponsors, and speakers for the convenience of executives and advisors who may value their services but were perhaps unaware of their promotional activities, whether they attended such events or not. 

This is a new section to make more executives aware of the many services we can introduce.  The NPE, BIO, PackExpo and NMW exhibitor lists provide examples of this service as a way to highlight areas which are trying to attract a specific industry.

Refer also to the Events section for current information about our own event plans.

See also other resources which may be of interest, as well as additional shortcuts at the bottom of this page, such as tables which highlights project announcements, professional service providers, and regional contacts for locations worldwide.

Our similarly structured Ad Recall service highlights advertising by areas, and we can also highlight special promotional activities, promotional materials, and detailed factual presentations, data sources, and major property listings for areas.  We tie such information together through GUIDE Area Profiles and regional contact lists.

Executives : Please let contacts know how you found them, so that they recognize the value of our independent marketing and referral work.

Please also tell us how you found us and how we can better serve you and reach other executives who would value this service to support their own project plans.

Explanation of this section

The main focus of our work, as explained separately, is to develop relationships with top executives and their advisors through personal contact work, and refer them to the information resources and professionals who can help them with their plans.

To achieve that objective, however, we also plan to complement our direct contact work with general marketing and networking activities, including advertising, PR work, special events, and other channels to reach more of the executives we serve.

This section will highlight economic development organizations and professional services providers which have chosen to participate in such marketing activities to quickly reach more executives together who may value their capabilities.

We welcome suggestions to improve the effectiveness of this marketing investment at efficiently reaching more top executives who could take advantage of these services.

We also welcome new participants in this service, which we can explain personally to any area representatives or professional service providers who may be interested.

There is also a separate section to highlight the advertising of organizations which may not participate in our own advertising, PR, and event work for 2004, but which have chosen to highlight their own separate advertising (whether in print or online) or event participation as an inexpensive "ad recall" response service to help executives and advisors find advertisers quickly and easily whenever their services are needed.

Other resources which may be of interest

There are also other pages on this website where you can find :

 Examples : Who exhibits where?  Where can you meet?

The initial examples shown below come from the NPE 2003 and NMW 2004 trade shows, but would be combined with information about other events for participants in this service, such as to highlight the various events at which they can be found throughout the year.  In short, this would consolidate information across many trade shows.

Listings will include more details than these initial examples

These examples just list the exhibitors and website links.  Participants in this service would have more complete listings (summary, contact name, phone, email, address) with links to Area Profiles or other related content to highlight the area for investors.

www.alliantgroup.com    Service Profile

David Mayer  646-228-8895  New York

  • Over $500 million in R&D tax credits for clients
  • Services to over 1000 private and public companies

alliantgroup specializes in US federal and state R&D tax credits and incentives, typically for companies with over 100 employees up to hundreds of millions of dollars in revenues.  The management team includes very experienced tax specialists from all Big Four public accounting firms.

Many executives may not yet realize the very large cost savings which can be achieved now through these research and development tax credits.

The eligibility criteria have changed so that more types of costs qualify for this incentive program, and the tax savings can be both retroactive and carry forward.

Potential savings may be overlooked by tax advisors who don't specialize in such work.  This advisory work does not conflict with "attest" services by auditors, because alliantgroup is not a public accounting firm.

The savings often range from several hundred thousand to millions of dollars which can be obtained within a few months.  More >
