Accelerate Long Beach
September 29, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm$95.00
The Long Beach Economic Partnership‘s regional economic forum returns with Accelerate Long Beach presented by Bank of America, where we’ll be hearing from business and economic leaders on the theme of “Navigating the Future.”
The event will include a talk by renowned economist Dr. Robert Kleinhenz of Cal State Long Beach and Kleinhenz Economics, who will report on trends in consumer spending, housing, international trade, employment and other economic factors, including the possibility of a recession. There will also be a special panel discussion about advanced air mobility, with Wisk Aero representatives sharing details about their company’s development of the country’s first all-electric, self-flying air taxi.
Guest speakers such as Cal State Long Beach President Jane Close Conoley will be among the policy makers and business and community leaders talking about the challenges and opportunities ahead, and the event will also include a special announcement from the Port of Long Beach.
Additional guest speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
They’ll highlight what investors need to know about this unique city on the boarder of Los Angeles and Orange counties, where it is a major contributor for more than $1 trillion in annual economic output between the two counties. That’s thanks, in part, to it being a destination for students, startups, and investment capital from around the world, with continued growth across multiple and diverse industry sectors.
