EDCU played host to 50 of the globe’s top Site Selector consultants during the first week of April. With sponsors/ community partners, they created a truly “Utah unique” experience that showcased Utah’s economic, outdoor rec, food /beverage, & arts/culture assets. But beyond the tremendous assets, they also displayed the essence of #TeamUtah — collaboration. They learned about what’s driving activity – talent, globalization, mega-trends, & other macro forces that are impacting business decisions. They are thinking about the changing landscape of incentives. But they are mostly thinking about people. One of the most prominent consultants told them, “You know the one thing that always stands out about Utah? It’s that the people are honest and true. Our clients have come to rely on it.” It’s hard to quantify some of those “qualitative” features, but hearing the consultant say that was yet another reminder of why it’s important to create opportunities to interface directly w/ consultants & prospects.
