Charles County Hosts First Site Selection Consultants Familiarization Tour

Posted by: Economic Development Team on Tuesday, July 7, 2015

Charles County FAM Tour at Chutes InternationalThe Department recently hosted the County’s first site selection consultant familiarization (FAM) tour, which aimed to better acquaint site selectors with Charles County and the business assets the County has to offer for business investment and expansion.

Four consultants from Mohr Partners, Collier International, ADP and Atlas Insight spent a day and a half in Charles County meeting with local companies and touring the County. Toward the end of the trip the four consultants provided their candid observations and feedback during a dinner panel attended by various key stakeholders – local businesses and public officials – from the community.

The Department, where applicable, will take feedback from the consultants to better position the community for economic development.  Click here for photos from the event.

The FAM tour is part of the Department’s new business attraction strategy to focus on building relationships with site selection and real estate professionals who help firms identify locations for growth and expansion.
