Where Do We Go from Here?

As the COVID-19 Pandemic Impacts the Region and the World, Where Does the Economy Go from Here?

It’s been just over three months since the annual BizTimes Economic Trends event in January. Since then, the world, the United States and the Milwaukee region have been significantly impacted by the current health pandemic.

Join Associated Bank and BizTimes on Thursday, May 21 from 10-11:30 AM Central for a live webcast addressing an updated economic outlook for 2020.

Dr. Knetter will address issues related to unemployment, the impact of new government programs designed to help the economy and the impact on certain key industry sectors.

Following Dr. Knetter, our additional featured presenters will update their company and industry forecasts.

After those updates, Dr. Knetter and the speakers will participate in a moderated virtual Q&A session. Presenters will cover updated economic outlook by industry, employment trends, innovation and strategies to get back on track in 2020.
