"NWA Aims Message At Site Selectors"

Recommended Posts

Interesting.  Still think NWA/FSM is still one of America's biggest secrets at this point in time. And I still (saying this a bit nervously) think we ain't seen nothin' quite yet...:



Mike Harvey knew next to nothing about northwest Arkansas before he took a job as COO of the Northwest Arkansas Council in 2011.

Now Harvey is leading an aggressive campaign to change the fact that northwest Arkansas is still a “blank slate” to the site selectors who could be important to the region’s economic development future.

Harvey visited with about 50 site selectors in 2013 and plans to bring in groups of three to five selectors at a time later this year for guided tours of the area.

The so-called “fam tours” — short for familiarization — would give selectors a chance to meet with city leaders and chamber members as well as get a ground’s-eye view of the region’s infrastructure and cultural hotspots. Harvey said he plans to focus on selectors from Chicago and Dallas initially and then Atlanta and New York City because most of the area’s outside investment originates from those areas.
