2018 Economic Forecast Conference


9th Annual Inland Empire Economic Forecast Conference

California's Land of Opportunity 


It's been a decade since the U.S. fell into the worst economic downturn of the modern age. The Great Recession was especially ‘great’ in the Inland Empire where the damage inflicted was among the worst in the nation and came at a time of unprecedented expansion locally. Today, propelled by one of the fastest growing populations in the state, the region has largely put this painful episode behind it as unemployment has fallen to record-low levels, incomes are rising, and the housing market is picking up ever greater steam.

Launched in 2010, the Inland Empire Economic Forecast Conference quickly emerged as one of most highly anticipated and widely attended business gatherings in the region. The conference is known for delivering new insights about the major indicators driving the national, state, and regional economy. From real estate markets to personal income to new construction activity, speakers deliver comprehensive, accurate outlooks for both the near and long term future. The event attracts hundreds of C-level government and business leaders from across Southern California.
