Area Development’s Consultants Forum group will hold the first of a new series of ACADEMY | WORKSHOP programs April 9-10, 2018 at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta. This inaugural event will be an interactive one-and-a-half-day program centered on Writing the Effective RFP.

The RFP ACADEMY | WORKSHOP will be led by six experienced site consultants who provide their viewpoint on what is required to create a well written, superior RFP. The program will provide a unique learning experience to improve your community’s RFP response, increase your location’s opportunity for consideration with site selectors and help avoid early elimination.

An integral part of the program has each attendee submit a mock RFP response prior to the event. The mock RFPs will be used as part of Roundtable discussions and individually reviewed by a consultant on a "one-on-one" basis.


Day 1 is a set of presentations focusing on what to include and what to avoid when producing a winning RFP. Sessions cover organizational skills, supplying essential data and demographic content, providing the right real estate information among other criteria.

Day 2 is a two-part hands-on agenda with attendees selecting two site consultant led Roundtable discussions, including "one on one” reviews of submitted mock RFP responses.

A $200 credit will be provided to each attending organization to be used towards a future 2018 Consultants Forum event.
