Abstract

In this study of industrial recruitment and economic development, perceptual mapping was used to identify the collective and individual positions of ten competing south‐eastern cities. The perceived position of the “ideal” city also was captured by the study's findings. Industrial real estate executives who were surveyed indicated that some cities have positioned themselves strategically in terms of quality of life, whereas others are recognized because of their resources and markets or pro‐business environment. Some cities appear better able to take advantage of their position, whereas others face economic development obstacles.
