Large business relocations may draw splashy headlines and bring jobs and revenue to a city, but a new data analysis shows that such moves are much rarer – and less beneficial – than thought.

What: Webinar about the Metropolitan Futures Initiative latest quarterly report, Business Relocations in Southern California.

When: Tuesday, Aug. 15 from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m.
