|CiCi Awards Issue 2019|
Trade & Industry Development’s 14th Annual Corporate Investment/Community Impact Awards (CiCi Awards) issue honors key projects around the country that promise—through extensive capital investment or influential community impact—to help shape the communities in which they are located, and in which they continue to develop and grow. Read about our 30 winners in our CiCi Awards coverage starting on page 28. This issue also has three special reports: finding the best location for a corporate HQ, site selection for the financial services industry and keys to winning in corporate real estate.
In this issue, we tap experts in three growing fields: biotechnology, medical manufacturing and agriculture/food processing. In biotech, we focus on access to a qualified workforce capable of keeping pace with advances in the industry. The medical manufacturing field is expected to see continued growth and expansion—and location changes will be part of the strategic choices. Food manufacturing executives know proper location of their facilities can have a dramatic impact on operational and cost-related variables. Our Sites & Programs this issue also deals with food and agriculture production.
