Regional Forecast Conferences

About Our Conferences

Beacon Economics began holding regional forecast conferences in response to a demand for independent, objective analysis about California’s major regional economies. These candid, thought-provoking events, go beyond the state and national picture and hone in on the economies and demographics of local areas, delivering the disaggregated, region-specific information needed by businesses, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations.

Beacon Economic’ forecast conferences can help decisionmakers weather today’s fluctuating economy and seize the opportunities that various economic trends present. The take-home centerpiece of each event is a Regional Forecast Book — an original, in-depth analysis of a region's labor markets, housing and commercial real estate markets, personal income, demographic trends, and other key indicators of a local economy. The books are valuable and enduring resources for anyone facing important economic and financial decisions in the near- and long-term future.

Why We're Different

Unlike many economists employed by financial institutions or other agencies, the opinions of Beacon Economics are independent. The analysis behind Beacon Economics’ conferences is always intellectually honest and rooted in rigorous, empirical research. Valuable sponsorship opportunities are available.
