12th Annual Economic Forecast Forum

Event Date: January 6, 2014

Economic Forecast Forum Event Logo

As we continue to face the fiscal challenges of doing business in these uncertain times, the 2014 Economic Forecast Forum is certain to sell out. The Forum will bring together 1,200 of the state’s most influential business leaders on Monday, January 6, 2014, at the Sheraton Imperial in Research Triangle Park. This year’s keynote address will be given by Kelly King, Chairman & CEO of BB&T. Other speakers include U.S. Senator Richard Burr and Dr. Harry Davis.

A special session is held each year focusing on a different segment of economic development. This year’s session will feature North Carolina’s military presence and the economic opportunities it provides. Our state’s military installations contribute directly to economic development through capital investments, employment and defense contracting, and indirectly through increased demand experienced by regional businesses and spending from military households. Additionally, retired military personnel and veterans, given their attractive skill sets, are desired employees for industries. It is important that our business community continues to find ways to open up career opportunities for qualified military applicants by transitioning the skills they have gained through their service into jobs in the civilian workforce.
