Site Selection's editorial mission is to publish information for expansion planning decision-makers — CEOs, corporate real estate executives and facility planners, human resource managers and consultants to corporations. Our goal is to help the expansion planner do a better job.
A quick scan of Site Selection reveals that we are a different kind of development publication. Here's what sets us apart:
- Focus on the CEO. We know that the ultimate decision to invest in a new plant or expansion resides with the very top level of management — the CEO, president or chairman of the board. More than 50% of our subscribers are the highest level managers and decision makers.
- And that's why so much of our coverage focuses on the CEO. Our cover series features top-level officials at such companies as Motorola, Fujitsu, Whirlpool, Intel and Northern Telecom. Our editorial page ("For CEOs Only") is written from a top management perspective.
- Global view. The world knows no boundaries when it comes to plant location. A typical site search for a multi-national firm (and an increasing number of medium-sized firms) might consider Malaysia, Mexico or Mississippi. We research and write every major report from a global perspective and distribute the magazine to a select audience of corporate decision-makers around the world.
- Important connections. Site Selection is the official publication of the Industrial Asset Management Council (IAMC).
- Information-based. Site Selection is a true database publication designed for the information age. Each issue of Site Selection reports the findings of our original surveys. Our annual tally of new plants and expansions (reported in February) is cited by new media around the globe.
- Survey of 11,000 business parks (in December) is the most complete in the world. And our annual survey of business climates (in October) is a barometer of where industry will be welcomed.
- We have "keep quality". Site Selection is the only periodical in the development field indexed by H.W. Wilson and the Business Periodicals Index, and we are the only publication in the field that is found in libraries around the world. Surveys tell us that subscribers typically save Site Selection for a year, and some keep their issues for up to five years!
Site Selection covers the world like no one else in the industry. Only Site Selection gives a global, expansion-minded audience World Reports, compiled by our network of top-notch, veteran international correspondents.
Our correspondents are based in the Asia-Pacific region, in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. That gives World Reports the edge in providing readers with the inside international story, the breaking news in the business expansion equation - encompassing everything from business climates to economic development initiatives to industry "location wars."
"Choosing North Carolina was a pretty easy decision for us once we stacked up all the evidence and reviewed our criteria such as central location within the eastern seaboard, the skilled labour force available in the greater Asheboro area and the No.1 ranking of the state's business climate in Site Selection magazine,"

"For relevant information I can use to guide my business units."
- Charles McSwain, CSX, Jacksonville, Fla.
"It is the industry leading magazine. It has the best, in-depth, insightful, useful interviews with leaders in the field. It provides the best resource (names and phone numbers) for developing contacts with local economic development agencies. It provides the best high-level surveys of relevant issues in the industry."
- Scott Reed, Anheuser-Busch,
St. Louis, Mo.
"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."
- Michael Rareshide, Partners National
Real Estate Group, Dallas, Texas

"Based on our project load at any given point, we may be focused on one or more specific regions of the country. Reading Site Selection helps get us out of location-specific details with a good, comprehensive, macro-level update on what is happening throughout the country. Other attributes that we like are the industry-level reports and the project-specific reports."
