Virtual Lead Generation: Investment Changes and Trends in Response to COVID-19

This webinar will look at the initial responses and trends the Research Consultants International FDI research teams have identified based on feedback from executives across North and South America and Europe over the past few weeks since the coronavirus pandemic has restricted travel and shuttered enterprise around the globe.


Research Consultants International FDI, Inc is a Montreal-based market research firm that specializes in investment attraction programs for economic developers.

Senior executives, Erika Magder, VP Sales & Global Products and Amber Hunter, VP, Business Development will offer an overview of their initial findings and discuss how economic developers may be able to react to meet and mitigate these emerging challenges.

They will also provide a synopsis of how business leaders have reacted, what they are hearing in terms of future investment plans. She will discuss which industries have already demonstrated a decline in expansion interest and which are emerging as more primed for growth.

This webinar will also shed light on how the Research Consultants International FDI team has adapted to digital programs to continue business recruitment initiatives and outline tips and tricks to coordinate Digital Lead Generation "Roadshows" to offset the travel restrictions in place for the foreseeable future.
