 Are you wondering where to get a sneak peek into the economy of the Santa Clarita Valley, the state of California, the United States, and the world? Does your company rely on accurate and up-to-date demographic data for the region? Are you interested in how growth and development will shape Santa Clarita in 2018 and beyond? If you answered yes! to any of these questions, you need to attend our 2018 Economic Outlook Conference!
The Economic Outlook Conference, scheduled for March 8, 2018, features speakers that will help business leaders prepare for both the short term and the long term. Economic forecasts are important for companies that need to have a short and long-term picture of what the economic trends will be and how that will affect the decisions they make.
Designed to provide attendees with an economic analysis and outlook for the coming year, the conference will include national, state and global perspectives, but will focus primarily on the trends and issues associated with the Santa Clarita Valley and the surrounding business community. Attendees will hear about topics such as demographics, employment, residential and commercial real estate trends, new developments and quality of life.
Featured speakers include Dr. Mark Schneipp from the California Economic Forecast which provides economic analysis and forecasting for a wide range of clients including businesses, non-profits, cities, regional organizations, colleges and universities. The California Economic Forecast’s special areas of expertise include regional economic analysis, economic evaluation of regions using local indicators, and longer term forecasting of California counties. Dr. Schneipp will provide a forecast for the Santa Clarita Valley at the event.
The second speaker is Dr. Mark Vitner, managing director and senior economist at Wells Fargo, who is responsible for tracking U.S. and regional economic trends. Based in Charlotte, N.C., he also writes for the company’s Monthly Economic Outlook report, the Weekly Economic & Financial Commentary, and provides regular updates on the housing markets, commercial real estate, regional economies, and inflation. Dr. Vitner will discuss issues that affect the global economy.
A third speaker will be announced shortly.
