MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley and other state officials
are spending four days in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, trying to sell
industrial site consultants on Alabama.

The director of the Alabama Development Office, Neal Wade, said
25 site consultants are attending the Alabama International
Business Conference, which runs Thursday through Sunday in the
coastal resort.

Site consultants help companies find locations for new plants.
Wade said the current economic situation makes it more important to
market Alabama.

He said the conference will give site consultants an opportunity
to dine, golf and enjoy other activities with the governor, House
Speaker Seth Hammett, state Finance Director Jim Main and others.

Alabama holds a similar conference each year. It was in Hawaii
in 2008 and Birmingham in 2007.
