A Resource for Industry

IALR and the Southern Virginia Regional Alliance collaborate to produce region-specific intelligence and data relevant to industry as they grow and expand. As a liaison for the whole of Southern Virginia, the research represents findings across the entire region rather than specific localities, a true value add to companies outside of the area who are looking for collective information. The process involves primary research methods with key stakeholders in various formats like roundtable sessions, studies, surveys, interviews and association meetings. Paired with secondary research and former studies, this data serves as a powerful tool for businesses as they develop their growth or market penetration strategies.

Arming Industry with Extensive Data

Just some of the types of resources available include:

  • Maps of major highways, ports, railroads, major market distances, the labor market, FedEx and UPS shipping times, and more
  • Community profiles, major employers, international companies, and Forbes Magazine’s feature on Virginia’s investments in innovation
  • Flyers and fact sheets on sites and buildings
  • Details of the Southern Virginia Megasite at Berry Hill (3,528 acres)
