Watch the summary of the key themes addressed at the 7th Annual Inland Southern California Economic Forecast Conference

The 7th Annual Economic Forecast Conference had record attendance and brought together hundreds of representatives from major industries and government organizations in the region to discuss the most important issues affecting the economic health and future of the nation, state and Inland Southern California. 

This year’s conference discussed what the region will look like 20 years in the future. While 2016 got off to a slow start for the U.S., the forecast for California and Inland Southern California is very bright and poised to outpace most other states in the nation over the next several years. The region needs to prepare for a dramatic population growth over the next few years, which will also mean more companies moving into the area and significant impacts for education, transportation and healthcare.
