"Best group of speakers in one place I've ever seen!"

Join us in December for the 12th Consultants Forum to be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Austin, Texas. This limited seat and boutique style event will focus on many of the critical issues that face EDCs in today's competitive and uncertain market.

"Everything from the speakers to the information to the venue
was first-class."

The Consultants Forum is an all business no-nonsense conference that attracts the leading names involved in global site consulting, corporate real estate and economic development strategy. This Forum features an outstanding program that allows you the opportunity to meet, network, and have discussions with a roster of active consultants who shape the decisions on many of today's leading projects.

"By far the best money spent by my organization on a conference."

The conference program is designed to provide those attending valuable takeaways of broader insight, the latest practical applications, new marketing ideas and established contacts that can help you compete more effectively in today's marketplace.

"As always, outstanding-
best in the business"

No other event can match The Consultants Forum's well established reputation for delivering the most value for your time and money invested.

Its consistently strong speaker program, coupled with outstanding networking opportunities at first class receptions and dinners provides the perfect environment to get business done.

Seating is limited to 100 delegates and like all previous Consultants Forums we expect it to be "sold out".
