Nov. 6, 2015 - PRLog -- Klamath Falls, Oregon (November 2, 2015) – Klamath County has been chosen as the location of the next Sitelink Forum, a regional conference that takes place in strategically chosen areas throughout the nation. The event, scheduled to be held at the Running Y Ranch Resort in May 2016, will be attended by seven site selectors from throughout the western United States. “Hosting an event like this speaks to the vitality of southern Oregon’s business climate,” said Greg O’Sullivan of the Klamath County Economic Development Association (KCEDA). “And, it speaks volumes about Klamath County's initiative to be in the game when it comes to aggressive business recruitment.”

According to the conference organizer, Klamath County was chosen as the site because of its stalwart commitment to economic development. “Klamath County is really proactive,” said Paige Webster, owner of Webster Global Locations. “They are forward thinking, and they care about getting more exposure to site selectors nationally.”

That exposure is crucial to future growth and development opportunities for the county, Webster says. “Site selectors do 60% of all the binary employer and large manufacturer projects in the world,” he said. “Exposure to them can make a real impact for Klamath County, but it’s also going to be good for the state because we bring in economic development agency representatives from all over the country.”  Attendees from California, Nevada, Washington and North Dakota will be onsite to see what southern Oregon has to offer.

The Sitelink Forum conference will take place May 18-20 at Running Y Ranch Resort. For attendance information, contact Paige Webster at (602) 621-0576. For information on economic development in Klamath County, contact Greg O’Sullivan at (541) 882-9600.
