ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The group in charge of making St. Louis' case for why it should be the home of Amazon’s second headquarters is keeping details of the bid a secret.

St. Louis is one of several cities competing to land Amazon’s HQ2. The deadline to submit a bid is Thursday. There is a promise of 50,000 jobs and billions in investment to the city that is chosen.

St. Louis Economic Development Partnership Chief Executive Shelia Sweeney said the team responsible for the bid have put together a top-notch presentation, giving St. Louis the best possible chance to win. The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership also says the riverfront is a big selling point.

No drawings or markups of what will be presented are available. How much the bid is costing the city is also unavailable.

News 4 was told there is a good reason for the secrecy, which will be revealed in November.
