RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — One of the most anticipated economic forecasts in Southern California is being held Thursday, Sept. 29 at the Riverside Convention Center.

The 7th annual Inland Empire Economic Forecast Conference will deliver fresh outlooks for the U.S., California, and Inland Empire economies including new data on where home prices, employment, personal income, consumer and business spending, commercial real estate markets, and many other indicators are heading in the near and mid-term future.

This year’s event also includes a long-range forecast and panel discussion about what the local region will look like in 2035. In 20 years, the Inland Empire will be the second largest population center in California and have more jobs than any place in the state other than Los Angeles. The Inland Empire 2035 panel will discuss the coming growth and how demand for education, health services, and transportation infrastructure will be met.

Additionally, leading political journalist John Myers will discuss the 2016 election and what it means to California. Renowned forecasters Christopher Thornberg and Robert Kleinhenz will present along with local leaders from across the region.

The event is presented by the UC Riverside School of Business Center for Economic Forecasting and Development. The Center opened its doors one year ago and has been producing a wide variety of economic analysis ranging from revenue forecasts to gross metropolitan product reports.

General registration is open until Wednesday, Sept. 28 on the conference website. Media wishing to attend should contact Victoria Pike Bond.
