Each year, Conway Data asks the State of Georgia to submit a list of its project locations. This information is used, among other factors, to rank states for Site Selection magazine’s Governor’s Cup (Georgia 4th in 2018), Prosperity Cup (Georgia 3rd in 2018), and Top State Business Climate (Georgia 1st in 2013 – 2018) each year. The projects we submit this December are part of the methodology for our chances of being No. 1 State for Business for the 7th year in a row!
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. In partnership with GEDA, through this web form we ask that you submit your qualifying project locations. 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
