"Why do I read Site Selection?"  
spacer
testimonial quote Site Selection is one of the more important publications that I read. The articles usually provide me much more insight into the decision-makers' processes and mindsets. They also give me substantive information to consider, with much of it being on the leading edge. The articles make me think about how they can improve my clients' portfolios. I find myself cutting out articles and forwarding such information to my clients for consideration. To me, Site Selection, along with a few other periodicals, is important to my business. "
