Nevada’s economy is like its weather: dynamic, variable—and best navigated with a reliable forecast. The College of Business at the University of Nevada, Reno understands that businesses, nonprofit organizations and government entities rely on relevant data, insightful analysis, timely trends and accurate projections to plan for what’s ahead.
On Friday, Jan. 31, The College of Business hosts Vision 2020: The Nevada Economic Forecast. The event will feature eight engaging, fast-paced presentations that will preview what’s in store for the Nevada economy, along with U.S. and regional factors, and key industry sectors in the state.
“This event provides a leading economic overview with a focus on individual industries,” College of Business Dean Greg Mosier said. “In this quick-hitting format, you’ll get forecasts in eight different sectors of the Nevada economy from regional experts in the field.”
Experts from The College of Business as well as thought leaders in the economic space will each provide 20-minute briefings, covering the national and regional economy, forecasts for Nevada as a whole and for its non-metro areas, and 2020 projections for mining, agriculture, housing, healthcare and tourism.
“If your organization depends on the success of any or all of our state’s multiple sectors, this event will guide your planning for 2020,” Mosier said.
Speakers at Vision 2020 include: Gregory Mosier, dean of The College of Business; Elizabeth Laderman, senior outreach economist with the U.S. Federal Reserve; Senator Ben Kieckhefer, Nevada State Senate, Nevada Interim Finance Committee; Patricia Herzog, director of rural economic and community development, Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development; Richard Perry, administrator, Nevada Division of Minerals; Jennifer Ott, director, Nevada Department of Agriculture; Brian Bonnenfant, director, Center for Regional Studies, The College of Business; Jeanne Wendel, professor emeritus, The College of Business; and Kyle Shulz, research manager, Nevada Division of Tourism.
