A Recession or a Near Miss? Find Out at the 10th Annual Economic Briefing

RIVERSIDE , Calif., Feb. 6, 2008 - The Business Press is proud to present the 10th annual Economic Briefing luncheon Tuesday, April 8, 2008, at the Ontario Convention Center.

According to noted economist and event host John Husing, the Inland economy is facing its most challenging year in two or more decades. How much of an impact will the housing collapse have on the local economy? What can you do to improve your situation and be ready for inevitable future growth?

"This year's Economic Briefing could not be more timely or on target," says Bob Dixon, editor of The Business Press. "For a decade, John Husing has unveiled his most detailed forecast for the coming year, incorporating and interpreting the most recent and relevant local, state and national economic data."

The Economic Briefing has become the premier economic event for the Inland Empire, and is expected to attract several hundred business and political leaders.

A panel of experts will join Dr. Husing in addressing the critical economic issues facing the Inland Empire business community, including housing, finance, international trade and retailing.

Scheduled panelists include: -- Longtime building consultant Steve Johnson, the Southern California director of MetroStudy, the housing market research firm -- Mary Sullivan, a real estate consultant who has researched the Inland Empire's industrial and office markets for 23 years -- Patty Senecal, director of government affairs for the International Warehouse Logistics Association, and the former vice president of Transport Express

Attendees will receive a copy Dr. Husing's annual forecast, "The Husing Report," which will be released at the briefing.

Prior to the noon luncheon, there will be a business expo where vendors will exhibit their products and services to the business community. There also will be a VIP reception, where guests can meet and chat with Dr. Husing.
