Site Selection Names Global Best to Invest Locations, Introduces the Prosperity Cup and Mac Awards for Excellence in Economic Development

Best to Invest 2016

Atlanta, May 2, 2016: Site Selection magazine has released its annual rankings of Global Best to Invest locations and Top Investment Promotion Agencies, which appear in the May 2016 issue. This feature recognizes the nations and economic development offices that were the most successful in attracting capital investment projects in 2015.

Prosperity Cup

The May 2016 issue also features new awards recognizing the most competitive states and the most successful local and regional US economic development agencies. The Economic Development & Tourism Division of the Governor's Office in Texas and the North Carolina Department of Commerce have won the Prosperity Cup, awarded to the most competitive state-level department of commerce or economic development. They have in common strong ties with non-profit partners the Texas Economic Development Council and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.

The Mac Awards for Excellence in Economic Development, named in honor of Site Selection founding publisher Mac Conway, are awarded to the top US economic development groups of 2015.

“Locations throughout the US and in every region of the world compete aggressively for direct investment at home and from abroad,” says Site Selection Editor in Chief Mark Arend. “Those appearing on these rankings have demonstrated with actual project numbers and other measures that they have the location attributes most in demand by capital investors.”

Site Selection magazine, published by Conway Inc., delivers expansion planning information to 48,000 executives of fast-growing firms. The senior publication in the development field, Site Selection is also available via Site Selection Online.
