Projects Location Database for Conway Data/Site Selection Magazine

Project Submission Form

Please help make Georgia the No. 1 state for business 9 years in a row---and move us up in the rankings for the Governor’s Cup, the Prosperity Cup, and other awards!

Twice a year (August and December), Conway Data asks the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) to submit information on new or expansion projects that meet certain criteria. This project information plays an important role in determining the awards mentioned above.

GDEcD submits information to Conway Data for all projects in which GDEcD is a partner. Do you have additional new locations or expansions in your community that can be counted?
