Site Selection Marks 60th Anniversary

Atlanta, January 10, 2014: Site Selection magazine’s January 2014 issue celebrates the publication’s Diamond Anniversary, marking 60 years of continuous publication since 1954, when such notable magazines as Sports Illustrated and Playboy also were launched.

In noting the magazine’s longevity, Editor in Chief Mark Arend also called attention to parent company Conway Data’s global growth today: a premier site consulting division (Terrain) in Berlin, Germany; an events division (Red Hot Locations) in London, and company representatives in markets throughout the world, as well as New York-based PONT Group, a marketing and public relations division. In addition to managing the Industrial Asset Management Council (IAMC) and its increasingly global membership, CDI is now co-owner of economic development education and research organization the Janus Institute and the Janus Forum, and launched the FDI Association, via its Red Hot Locations division, at the World Forum for Foreign Direct Investment in Shanghai in November. In 2013, CDI launched a Custom Publishing Division that will rapidly grow its profile in 2014.

“Site Selection is stronger than at any time in its 60-year history,” says Arend, “and CDI’s acquisitions and global partnerships will fuel that success in the years and decades ahead.”

The Diamond Anniversary issue also contains the magazine’s annual site selectors’ survey and its annual State of the States report, which delivers the latest in state work force demographics, economic development legislation and other decision data. Other reports include industry spotlights on creative & digital media; logistics hubs; oil, gas & coal; and customer contact centers; international spotlights on the Asia Pacific, Turkey, Latin America, Mexico and Western Canada, and state spotlights on Michigan, Alabama, New York, Oregon and other US regions. Also featured in the issue are Site Selection Investment Profiles of Florida Power & Light; Toledo, Ohio; Turkey; Pennsylvania; and Albuquerque, N.M.
