Site location experts from Texas, North Carolina, Louisiana, Indiana, Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Georgia, New Jersey, and India took part in the BDB’s 2016 Palm Beach County International Site Consultant Familiarization Program (FAM) on March 16-18. This year’s FAM tour focused on all areas of Palm Beach County. The site selectors met with public and private sector representatives, experienced various PBC communities, and peeked at the business assets here. The consultants gave the community important feedback at the BDB Breakfast at the end of the tour, commenting that they were most impressed with the spirit of collaboration among government and business sectors, and noting that they “learned that there is a real economy and a real sense of place here”. They also urged the BDB to emphasize the stability of the area, as well as the longevity of BDB personnel, which “speaks to the uniqueness of the area and your ability to work with companies over the long term.”
Site consultants such as these represent major national and international corporations and provide significant expansion and relocation leads to the BDB. These behind-the-scenes tours help the consultants to visualize Palm Beach County as a potential location for their clients.
