Press members will be allowed only during the Conference Opening on Tuesday, February 24 from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. Prior confirmation requested.
San Juan, PR – Puerto Rico welcomed today the members of the Site Selectors Guild that will meet this week at the Condado Plaza Hilton Hotel in San Juan for their 4th annual conference. Along with the Guild board and members, economic developers from around the world will also attend the event to discuss location trends and benefit from business networking opportunities.
“We welcome today over 300 business consultants and economic experts for an important gathering that will position Puerto Rico at the heart of relevant location discussions”, claimed the executive director of the Puerto Rico Industrial Development Company (PRIDCO), Antonio Medina Comas. “The fact that Puerto Rico is hosting the Guild’s 4th annual conference is no coincidence as the Island continues to progress on its economic and industrial development roadmap. We embrace this as an opportunity to promote our human capital, economic incentives and world-class infrastructure among those who will advice on future investment decisions.”
Nicholas Prouty, founder and CEO of Putnam Bridge, will deliver the official welcome on Tuesday. The conference agenda also includes relevant discussions about the characteristics of competitive places, location process, location factors and location trends.
Phil Schneider, Chair of Site Selectors Guild said, "On behalf of the Site Selectors Guild membership, we would like to thank PRIDCO and their fellow sponsors in Puerto Rico for hosting our 2015 conference. We are excited about the conference being held in San Juan and look forward to learning from the dynamic lineup of speakers and panels, networking with site selection and economic development colleagues, and learning more about what Puerto Rico has to offer.”
“Having chosen Puerto Rico as the perfect place to celebrate this important event, contributes to continue positioning our Island as a suitable place to promote global commercial relations. The gathering of this selected guild of world economic experts and professional consultants, gives us a great opportunity to show the diverse and unique advantages that we have to offer, which make us extremely competitive. Our message is straightforward: Selecting Puerto Rico as the best place to invest and make business is the winning formula,” added Alberto Bacó Bagué, Secretary of the Economic Development and Commerce Department of Puerto Rico.
The Site Selectors Guild is the only association of the world’s foremost professional site selection consultants. Guild members provide location strategy to corporations across the globe and for every industry, sector, and function. Their annual conference is highly sought after and provides a deliberately limited attendance to ensure a high quality event with direct business networking opportunities.
