Our new "advertising recall" service selectively highlights recently published ads, or banner ads and buttons, with website links and contacts for easy reference.

A similar "event recall" service highlights event sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers as opportunities to meet, and as a potential indication of their industry focus .

Our selective list of local "familiarization tours" and special promotional activities may interest executives and their advisors as a way to learn about some areas.

The list of professional business location consultants, other service providers, and "consultant tips" may be helpful to identify resources for project planning.

We selectively highlight available promotional materials such as labor market profiles or other potentially useful research reflecting local market knowledge.

There is also a new service to highlight "Point of View" analysis by professionals who identify verifiable data sources as they share their own local market knowledge.

The above links are to selective lists of project announcements from the past few years, which we use to highlight openly published details and contacts for easy reference.

We list major project announcements here for the convenience of investors and their advisors to recognize developments of potential interest in a region or industry.

There are professional research services which track and analyze trends in project announcements for their clients more comprehensively.  That is not our business.

Published articles about investment activity can also be found through our selective summary of editorial calendars by region or by topic, and our list of publishers.

Trade promotion or other business development programs - whether at the local, regional, or national levels
These lists are under development, as they are not the main focus of our work with direct investment projects, but may sometimes be helpful resources for executives.
