As we head into a new year, the world and economy is full of uncertainty. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, an extremely tight labor market, supply-chain issues, inflation, and a mid-term election year are all factors that could affect the economy in 2022.
How will it all play out and how can business leaders best prepare for what lies ahead in the new year? BizTimes Media’s annual Economic Trends Event will once again provide a panel of industry experts to share their insights.
The event will be held on Thursday, Jan. 27, at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee, with registration opening at 7 a.m., the event beginning at 7:30 a.m. and breakout sessions at 9:30 a.m. Click here to register.
