The Bureau of Business and Economic Research will bring its 40th annual Economic Outlook Seminar to the La Quinta Inn in Butte on Thursday, Feb. 5.
This year’s seminar, “The New American Energy Revolution: Reshaping Montana,” will focus on the changing energy sector and impacts within the U.S. and Montana. Information specific to Butte and southwest Montana also will be discussed.
BBER economists Patrick Barkey and Paul Polzin will present economic forecasts for each seminar city, and industry experts will provide the outlook for Montana’s important sectors: energy, nonresident travel, health care, agriculture, real estate, manufacturing and forest products.
Keynote speaker Bill Whitsitt, a retired Devon Energy executive vice president, will highlight what today's technology-driven American energy revolution means to people, markets, and economies -- and for innovation in Montana and the nation.
The seminar runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration is $85 and includes an economic outlook book, PowerPoint presentation book, lunch and a one-year subscription to Montana Business Quarterly. Continuing education credits are available, and groups of five or more qualify for discounted registration.
