Premiere Forecast Conference
Inland Southern California's

About The Conference

Launched in 2010, the Inland Southern California Economic Forecast Conference quickly emerged as one of most highly anticipated and widely attended business gatherings in the region. The conference is known for delivering new insights about the major indicators driving the national, state, and regional economy. From real estate markets to personal income to new construction activity, speakers deliver comprehensive, accurate outlooks for both the near and long term future.

The 2015 event marked the 6th year of the conference and was headlined by some of the nation’s most renowned economic forecasters. The program also included a panel of key education and government leaders who discussed the future of the inland region and the most effective policies for expanding economic growth. The event attracted hundreds of C-level government and business leaders from across Southern California


  • The US economy slowed in the first half of 2015. Will the expansion get back on track this year?
  • Mortgage interest rates have dropped below 4%. Where are they going from here?
  • California has been the 3rd fastest growing state in the nation over the last three years. Can the economy maintain its luster?
  • Home prices in the state are on the rise again. Too much too fast? Or sustainable growth?
  • Inland Southern California has outpaced the state as a whole for the past 3 years. Will the region’s performance persist?
