The Riverside BIA and ORCO Block & Hardscape partnered together to bring the 24th Annual Economic Forecast. The Annual Economic Forecast featured Dr. Esmael Adibi, Director of the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research and Anderson Chair of Economic Analysis from Chapman University. The Economic Forecast was hosted at the Riverside Convention Center on Wednesday, January 27nd with over 500 attendees. The Forecast was a packed house and continues to grow in numbers each and every year. Dr. Esmael Adibi’s presentation gave the building industry insight on the economic breakdown for the 2016 U.S. economy on a national, state and local focus on the Inland Empire. Attendees gained a substantial amount of insight on the impacts of the building industry and its continued positive growth for the inland region.
After the forecast, BIA held a happy hour mixer at ProAbition in downtown Riverside for all attendees. Members and guests enjoyed food, drinks, and networking opportunity.
The Riverside BIA would like to thank our co-host and partner, ORCO Block & Hardscape. Along with our 2016 chapter partners who help in underwriting this program and our generous event sponsors, this event would not be possible without your continued support.
