How community attributes affect business location decisions

Can data collected from business visits help you understand how perceptions of a community affect where a business decides to locate? How can a community take action using information discovered from business retention and expansion (BRE) initiatives? Join our webinar to explore these questions.

During our presentation, you will learn about:

  • The relationship between perceptions of community attributes and the community overall as a place to do business.
  • How Extension’s BRE benchmark database has helped communities determine their priority actions, based on survey data collected through business visits.

There will be time at the end of the webinar for questions and discussion.

Guests: Nich Tremper and Monica Haynes
