The consultant directory below selectively highlights business location strategy and site selection consultants specialized in business expansion projects and relocation services, with links to GUIDE Service Profiles and websites about their capabilities as appropriate. The presence or absence of any organization on these lists, or their position on the lists, does not imply any endorsement or opinion about their services, nor by them about our own.  We have more knowledge than we publish about the active participants.

The selections are simply intended to be helpful to executives who may be unaware of such contacts, or how to reach them or their websites quickly.  The table also discloses the scope of any relationships, as further explained in the relevant GUIDE Service Profile.
