Economic Trends

The annual Economic Trends Event, presented by BizTimes Milwaukee, hosts a vibrant discussion between prominent Wisconsin business leaders, state representatives, and industry experts on the state of the economy. This annual event includes a macroeconomic outlook on the economy from Michael Knetter, Ph.D., economist and president of the University of Wisconsin Foundation.

Economic Trends caters to all business leaders, providing insight into the economic outlook through analysis of industry trends and current economic indicators. Selected panelists bring perspectives from their industry while providing forecasts about the year ahead in business. This event has been annually attended by business leaders in Southeastern Wisconsin and for many has become the first significant business function of the calendar year.

Bull or Bear? What’s in store for 2016.

Foreign markets. Energy costs. Interest rates. These are just a few of the factors that promised to impact the economy in 2016.

Which of these work in your favor – and what should you be concerned about? Head into the new year armed with key insights.
