DAI was proud to be a sponsor of the Charlotte World Trade Association's

Development Advisors, LLC was proud to be a sponsor of the Charlotte World Trade Association's recent presentation on business with Canada by current Consul General of Canada Louise Blais.  Canada is North Carolina’s top trading partner, exceeding $10 billion in bilateral trading in 2014.  North Carolina has the lead in the exchange, exporting $6.7 billion to Canada annually. In the state, 247,500 jobs depend on trade and investment with Canada.

 Consul General Blais spent time in the Charlotte region visiting Canadian-based businesses including shipping company Purolator, paper manufacturer Domtar in Fort Mill, and manufacturer Eclipse Automation.

 Development Advisors is currently working with several Canadian firms and has been coordinating their site selection and expansion plans in several states.

Our Four-Step Process Is The Framework For Your Confidential Location Solution


Establish Project Scope


Site Selection & Incentive Analysis


Maximize Incentives Through Negotiation



Our Approach

CEOs and CFOs recognize they are not experts in location analysis and that their companies do not maximize incentives associated with new or routine capital investments. Our highly skilled team of former public officials and senior business executives has worked with clients throughout the United States on engagements ranging from $2 million to $1 billion in capital investment. Our diverse industry sector knowledge, subject matter expertise, and market understanding––combined with our background in the public sector––consistently add value to your capital investment decisions.


“The final package your company negotiated for me was many times my best-case estimate of what I might have been able to win in incentives. I have been in business for over 15 years and I can say that hiring your company is the best business decision I have ever made.”

Jay Brennan/ President Natural Care Labs
