Online registration now closed for the 2012 L.A. Economic Forecast Conference on 6/21

Although online registration is now closed, there will be limited seats available tomorrow morning.  Registration on-site will take place from 7:00 to 7:30am.

Join Beacon EconomicsMetroIntelligence Real Estate and Economic Advisors and the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University for the fourth annual 'What's Next LA?' economic forecast conference on the morning of Thursday, June 21st at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott.
The sections covering residential and commercial real estate have again been authored by MetroIntelligence Principal Patrick S. Duffy.

This seminal annual event is presented in partnership with the Presidential and Key Executive MBA program at Pepperdine University and attended by hundreds of business and public sector leaders from across the Los Angeles region. Come hear California's leading forecasters deliver new outlooks for the national, state, and local economies.
  • Why do views on the U.S. economy remain downbeat despite solid signs of recovery?
  • Gas and oil prices continue to climb. What is the breaking point for the U.S. economy?
  • Despite low expectations for growth, the Dow recently crossed 13,000. Sustainable or is another crash on the way?
  • Signs indicate that California's economy is on the upswing. Will the recovery outpace, or fall behind, the rest of the nation?
  • Los Angeles's economic recovery appears to be lagging. What's holding back California's urban center?
Following the forecast, engage with some of the state's foremost corporate leaders, venture capitalists, and education professionals about the real condition of California's business climate. The state's ability to retain its position as one of the world’s largest and most successful economies is facing heightened challenges; it is worth asking whether growth is truly being hampered or whether claims of an ‘unfriendly climate’ fail to hold up under scrutiny.
  • Do California businesses have access to the capital they need?
  • Is California truly over-regulated? Which rules most need to be changed?
  • How does the state’s tax system affect economic growth? Is the current system unfair? Unfriendly? Unbalanced?
  • What does the state’s neglected infrastructure and strained educational system imply for California's future?
All registrants receive the following:
  • 2012 Los Angeles Economic Forecast Book -- a data-packed analysis of the region's economic indicators.
  • Quarterly updates to the forecast for one full year
  • Chance to interact with forecasters and speakers
  • Prime networking opportunity
  • Breakfast buffet
  • Hosted self-parking
