John Longshore, Senior Consultant at Global Location Strategies, will be a featured panelist at TrustBelt, an annual conference focused exclusively on the redevelopment of the former U.S. Rust Belt. Held November 5-7 in Detroit, TrustBelt brings together the most important corporate decision makers, site selection consultants and economic development agencies who make location decisions vital to the Midwest region.

Longshore is an authority in location advisory services for industrial and manufacturing projects. The panel discussion he will participate in is titled “Investing in America,” and will focus on the reasons so many companies, both domestic and foreign, are choosing to invest and expand in the United States. The discussion will be kicked off by critically acclaimed author and geopolitical strategist Peter Zeihan.

Entering its fifth year, #TrustBelt18 will focus on key investment-attraction issues such as:

  • How to create smart cities and intelligent communities and leverage their unique brand to attract and retain investment and talent
  • How innovation and new technologies are driving the future of manufacturing
  • The differences between the generations - tech savvy to tech reliant - and how smart cities will enable innovation
  • Ways that integrated workforce development programs can ensure retention
  • How the Midwest stacks up in overall economic competitiveness
  • Which industries are most likely to grow as manufacturing returns to the Heartland?
