Our Advertising Recall and Event Recall directories list recent advertisers and trade show event exhibitors related to this specialty, and InfoShop highlights some promotional materials for business locations and service providers.

General business research sources

The lists below identify many useful sources of company information to support research by professional service providers and economic development professionals when contacting companies.  This makes it easier to be well-informed from publicly available information about an industry or company when talking to top executives about their project needs.

The database products generally contain proprietary research beyond the basic factual listings about companies (name, address, website, phone) or content which can be found through company reports (as via EDGAR or the company websites).  Subscriptions are often required to access their proprietary research content.

The presence or absence of any organization on these lists, or their position on the lists, does not imply any endorsement or opinion about their services, nor by them about our own.

The selections are simply intended to be helpful to professionals who may be unaware of such resources, or how to reach their websites quickly for more information.  This can support professional services, investment promotion activities, and investor retention or "aftercare" activities to stay informed about the companies.

We welcome additional suggestions of useful sources of company information.

Note that there is a separate section for governmental information sources , and some information about companies may be found in the websites of area representatives or through other sources which they may identify (such as links in GUIDE Area Profiles). Note that regional research sources may be listed in many of the regional lists of area representatives (at the bottom of the lists) and in the associations and publishers section.

The following tables link to many other directories of potentially useful research sources available through this website and the thousands of links we maintain.
Selective Company Websites and Local Area Representatives by Region (parent company and major subunit locations)
Typically we will only list companies with more than 250 employees worldwide or 100 employees at the location of a major subunit, since our focus is on serving companies of sufficient size and growth rate to create more than 50 new jobs within 3 years when they set up operations in new locations.  We obviously do not try to list all companies of such size in all areas, as it is not our purpose to be another business directory publisher such as the many sources listed above.

The presence of a company on any of these lists does not imply that we have any working relationship with that company, nor that we are attempting to develop such a relationship.  The listings are just for quick, convenient reference, especially to highlight major employers in participating areas (as identified through our GUIDE Area Profile and Network Survey work).  This can make it easier to visualize where particular industries have clustered, and find the relevant area representatives or other contacts as cross-referenced to such locations.  Business directories generally do not make it easy to just scan, at a glance, which companies are in a particular area, and none that we know identify the local EDO's as we do.

Note that the Projects section selectively highlights some recent investment project announcements by industry or by regionWe welcome suggestions for updates.
