Forecast LA Conference: LA County’s Economic and Civic Outlook from Leaders and Residents. 

SCG is a proud partner of the inaugural Forecast LA conference, bringing together Southern California thought leaders for a lively and insightful discussion about the most important issues and challenges on our region’s horizon.

A joint venture by LMU’s Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Center for the Study of Los Angeles and Beacon Economics, an L.A.-based economic research and consulting firm, Forecast LA uses a highly contextualized, multi-pronged approach in which economic trends are considered through the lens of public opinion. Presenters such as Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will share forecasts for the region’s economy, political environment, and civic leadership.

Forecast LA combines economic outlook forecasting with original survey research to produce a comprehensive yet nuanced look at what lies ahead for Los Angeles County and its nearly 10 million residents. Participants will explore how to successfully navigate the rocky shoals of a post-recession economy:

  • Assess economic opportunities and threats
  • Discover top-of-mind concerns among Los Angeles County residents
  • Learn about emerging trends in real estate markets
  • Get a critically important “long view” on the local economy
  • Network with business leaders and public officials

This unique regional forecast offers an original, in-depth analysis of labor markets, commercial and residential real estate markets, personal income, demographic trends, and other key economic indicators.

Results of original surveys will reveal what Los Angeles County residents think about a variety of personal and public issues, from household finances to quality-of-life concerns, and what Los Angeles County mayors have to say about their term-of-office priorities and what lies ahead for their cities.
