Each year, Conway Data asks the State of Georgia to submit a list of its project locations. The projects we submit this August are part of the methodology for our chances of being No. 1 State for Business for the 7th year in a row! This information is used, among other factors, to rank and award states for Site Selection magazine’s State Business Climate (No. 1 for 6 years), the Governor's Cup (No. 6 in 2018), the Prosperity Cup (No. 5 in 2019), The Mac Awards (SEDA, MAC & Invest Atlanta won in 2019), and Top Deals (Georgia’s SK Innovation and Norfolk Southern locations won in 2019).
We need your help to maintain Georgia’s ranking as the No. 1 Business Climate and improve our other rankings. We do not want your hard work locating new companies to Georgia, and assisting expanding ones, to go uncounted simply because it was unreported.
The Georgia Department of Economic Development has information only for the projects in which we were a partner, so please provide us with information about your additional project locations and local business activity. In partnership with GEDA, through this web form we ask that you submit your qualifying projects. Qualifying projects are new and expanding manufacturing, distribution/warehouse, corporate headquarters, R&D labs, call centers, and data centers which meet the following qualifications:

a. 20 or more new jobs
b. 20K or more square feet of space
