Topping this year's list is the Nashville metro area, followed by Atlanta, Kansas City, Charlotte and Indianapolis. Rounding out the Top 10 are Phoenix, Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, Dallas-Fort Worth and Jacksonville.

In order to find out which are today's hottest cities for business expansion, Expansion Management surveyed more than 80 of the industry's most prominent site location consultants in order to find out which cities their clients find most attractive when it comes to actually selecting an expansion or relocation site — and why these cities are more appealing than the others.
